How would you like to sit on this bench?
Sitting on the bench in London, England is one of our blogging partners. Mrs. Monaghan runs the fabulous classroom blog A Room with a View from Middleham, England. She and her family visited London this summer and sent us a photo for our reading blog because she thought we would like one from another country! She said she was thinking of us as she and her daughter went on a book trail hunt! They went on the Books About Town hunt for benches hidden in different parts of London.
Here is what Mrs. Monaghan wrote to us:
Artists had been commissioned to illustrate benches to depict a book or author – and you could follow a map trail around the city to discover them – mainly in parks and leafy spaces. Needless to say we whiled away many happy hours obsessively searching!
The first picture is not very good but at least I remembered to get a book out! The last one is my favourite bench… thought you’d like a little quiz to see if you can guess it!
Now the challenge is of course to figure out which book this bench depicts. Talk about a puzzle. I think I am going to need help!
Who can help me figure this out?
Can you help me please??? Do some research, with your parent’s permission of course, and figure out what book is featured on the bench. Then leave a comment on the blog and let us all know what you found out and how! Maybe you think you know it in your head. You still need to do research to verify your idea. Please, please, leave us a comment and give us all the scoop on the mysteriously, colorful bench! Inquiring minds want to know!
Thank you so much Mrs. Monaghan for sharing these fabulous reading photos from London, England. We hope you will also visit Mrs. Monaghan’s blog A Room with a View as well. They have just started school again for the 2014-2015 school year and always have great posts to read.
