"Angus Lost" by Margorie Flack

"Always curious, Angus runs away from his house to seek new adventures. Find them he does, but will Angus make it back home?" ~ Amazon product description

Aubrey sorted pom-poms by color using tongs, counted them, then completed several color patterns.

The girls scooped out (then ate) their pretend doggie snacks.

The girls "d"ot painted a large letter "D" (for dog).
In the story, Angus follows a milk truck to its deliveries.  We went to the Children's Museum of Atlanta where Aubrey milked a pretend cow for the first time and learned the steps to getting milk from the cow to to the table.

 Addison liked driving the tractor on the farm.

On another related field trip, we went with some friends to the Mayfield Dairy in Braselton, GA.  First, we watched a film about the dairy.
We are modeling our hairnets prior to the tour. During the tour, the girls saw where the large milk trucks/tankers come in from the farm, the large pipes that heat the milk to kill the bacteria, and the milk jugs that are filled and sent out to the stores.
The girls milked another pretend cow.
Afterwards, we enjoyed a picnic in the park with our friends.
The story is illustrated in silhouette.  Above is a silhouette of a Scottish terrier that looks just like Angus.  Below are the silhouettes of Aubrey and Addison that I had done the week after we rowed this book.
