Creepy Carrots

Oh what fun we had in the library this week! First graders enjoyed listening to Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds. This is yet another book from this year's Goldfinch Award nominee list!

This story is all about Jasper rabbit and a particular carrot patch that he enjoyed picking carrots from. Sometimes he would even eat carrots three times a day. This continues until one day he starts to feel like those carrots are creeping up behind him. He starts to see them everywhere he goes and finally can take no more. What happens next surprised us all and made a few kids giggle.

First grade is working on identifying fiction and nonfiction books and where they are placed in the library. We have been talking about how books are organized alphabetically by the author's last name as well.

It was another great week! Please let me know if you have any questions:
