Froggy Goes to the Library
This is Not That Kind of Book
This clever alphabet book... Wait, that's not right. This original fairy tale... Nope. Mystery? Joke book? Superhero story? Pirate adventure? This delightful mash-up features every kind of character found in the picture-book universe--all in one book. Just when the reader is convinced the story is going in one direction, it spins off in another.
Ever-changing illustrations keep pace with the rapid reversals, and the setting shifts with nearly every turn of the page. Truly inventive, here's a picture book that can be anything you want it to be!
After enjoying this story 3rd - 5th graders explored our Library Catalog through Follett on ClassLink and further into Destiny Discover. Using Destiny Discover allows students to see what book they have checked out from the library as well as adding book Favorites for future check out. Destiny Discover shows students what new books we have recently added to the library collection as well.
I Took My Frog to the Library
Bridgett's pelican hides a dictionary in his pouch, so students asked "what is a dictionary?" I pulled out our copy of Websters' Third New International Dictionary Unabridged, which has a 1981 copyright date and is 2,662 pages long!
After enjoying this story 1st and 2nd graders created a page for a class book - including an animal they would like to bring to the library and what would happen then. K students colored a page with all the animals from the story.
