Literature as a Toddler/Preschooler

I don't remember if I have mentioned that we are doing work based loosely on the BFIAR curriculum.  We are reading books in the recommended book list, and doing activities which ties in with the books.  We are also still working on 'riting, reading and 'rithmetic at the same time.

Does all of that seem too much for someone who is barely 4 years and 1 1/2 months old? Well, you seem to just soak it all up, and love love "school time" :)

Recently we read "Katy No Pocket", and so we tied in learning some simple things about Australia and the continents,

And tried our hand at some Aboriginal dot painting. :)

We are also doing some simple time-telling exercises.  Right now we are merely learning the "hours", but we aren't in that much of a hurry, are we? :)
