R is for Rose. A delicious red rose can be fashioned by layering small ovals for petals. A leaf can be made from a greed diamond. Children can draw in a stem connecting the two elements.
I love to read the story of the pacifist bull, Ferdinand, by Munro Leaf. While the other bulls tussle and fight, Ferdinand would rather smell the roses. Below is a PDF of the story without illustrations. Enjoy!
