We just got this great new Emily Gravett book!
I'm a fan of her quirky books and this one, true to form, has fantastic pictures and a silly plot. It also sneaks in an important life lesson about trying to be fashionable by following what everyone else is doing.
I tried it out with a visiting Preschool this morning and it was a hit. Students created pictures of their goofy hats or hair after storytime. I used 11x17 paper to make a head with lots of space above. I added a sentence at the bottom where kids could choose the word they were illustrating. In a lot of cases, the creativity was just too much and kids had both hat and hair circled.
We had a wonderful time reading this book, talking about this book, and creating pictures from the ideas in this book. A great picture book will help adults READ
with kids. There's learning everywhere!
