I chose to read the storybook Know What I Saw? written by Aileen Fisher and illustrated by Deborah Durland DeSaix. On the front cover is a little girl wearing a baseball cap with what looks like mountains in the background. From this pictures, I could infer that she possibly went on a trip to the mountains and saw a lot of things that she had never seen before, and wanted to tell her readers about it. These pictures are well-done and realistically drawn.
The little girl tells a story of things

Story takes place in a farmland setting with a little girl counting down from spying on 10 collies to 1 puppy. The illust
Literacy skills:

Narrative skills-children will be able to predict what will happen next due to the patterns in the story.

Phonological sensitivity-the rhyme throughout will help build phonological sensitivity.
