Black Dog

Have you checked out the new resources in my catalogue?
The suggested age range for Picture Book Explorers ~ Black Dog is 5 to 10 years old. It’s
one of the smaller PBEs and is part of a series with a focus on the science of weather.
The book, Black Dog by Levi Pinfold, is beautifully illustrated. The level of detail in the
pictures of the Hope family home kept my son engaged for ages.
We did all the activities in the pack for testing purposes, but you can pick and choose which
ones suit your family best. We had a great time learning about British folklore as one of the
activities and my son wrote his own Black Dog poem after reading the original folk song.
(Links to the original lyrics are in the pack.) Making paint out of egg yolk was definitely his
favourite activity

Instructions for these activities and many more are included in the pack.

I have to say that we were very lucky because it snowed at the perfect time for this pack,
but please don’t let lack of snow put you off exploring this fabulous book. There are other,
year-round science activities and the snow related maths can be done at any time of year.
Keep checking back for the next four Picture Book Explorers in this new weather science series.
I'd love to hear about your child’s favourite activity in Picture Book Explorers packs 👩
