K is for King letter of the week

Don’t our K’s look royal?


Old King Cole was a merry old soul,
And a merry old soul was he.
He called for his pipe
And he called for his bowl.
And he called for his fiddlers three.
Every fiddler had a fine fiddle
And a very fine fiddle had he.
Twee tweedle dee tweedle dee
Went the fiddlers
Twiddle dum dee deedle dee dee.


Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,
Merry, merry king of the bush is he.
Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, kookaburra,
Happy your life must be!

The King, the Mice, and the Cheeseby Nancy Gurney

I’m not sure you can find this book new anymore, but we’ve got it on loan from the library – and the kids keep asking for it.  A king loves cheese more than anything; the problem is that so do the mice that raid his castle to get it!   His wise men keep making suggestions as to what animals he can bring to the palace: cats to chase away the mice, dogs to chase away the cats… fun story!


Koala Lou, by Mem Fox

If you’ve never read a book by Mem Fox, check out some of her other books when you find this one. Koala  Lou’s mother is so busy she forgets to tell her how much she loves her.  Koala Lou enters the Australian Olympics to win her mother’s affection, only to find that her mother loves her no matter what.
