"The SLP program I am most excited about is archaeology."
Miss Melia would like to recommend these SLP-themed books to Dig Into Reading!
Good Night, Garden Gnome by Jamichael Henterly
Recommended for ages 4 to 8
Garden Gnome lives in the garden. During the day, he stands tall and proud watching over the land. He is a quiet friend to the child there. But as night falls, he comes alive and tends to the garden and animals that live there. This is a enchanting story of friendship and kindness. What makes this book unique is its lack of words. Even so, the illustrations and events portrayed make it an enjoyable story!
The Skull in the Rock by Lee R. Berger & Marc Aronson
Recommended for ages 8 and up
Even though this is an archeological book about human origins, it tells an awesome story about Professor Lee Berger and the work of a devoted archaeologist. A great example of literary nonfiction, The Skull in the Rock puts the reader into the adventure of searching for ancient human remains. Colorful photos throughout add interest and several descriptive diagrams provide useful visuals. The book even has a few two-page spreads of step-by-step archaeology techniques such as how to find a fossil. A good read for future archaeologists!
