Library Spotlight: Sebastian's Roller Skates


I will be highlighting a book each month that is from our own home library.  I will include unit studies, notebooking pages, activities, crafts and art - for optimal homeschool fun.  Today I will feature this fun and engaging book: Sebastian's Roller Skates 

The Bug really enjoys this book and has been reading it since Kindergarten.   It has wonderful illustrations and has many themes that you can pull from while reading this to your child.
