Book Sharing Monday

This week we are sharing Petunia, Beware! by Roger Duvoisin. It's about a goose on a farm that never likes the food she has. She tries to share with all the other farm animals, then decides the grass is literally greener on the other side of the fence. She decides to check it out, with lots of warning from the other animals. There's a raccoon, bobcat, weasel and fox that are out there trying to eat her. She wanders toward her goal of the grass at the top of the hill, only to find the grass isn't any better there!! And while she's out, she comes across the animals she was warned about, has to get away from them, and ends up back at the farm, where she finds the grass there is the BEST EVER!

I have always struggled with the issue of things looking better on the other side of the fence, so this book is great for me. I think it's a good thing to teach kids--appreciate what you have!
