This is Not My Hat
By: Anna McGibany
Why did I choose this book?
This is Not My Hat is a wonderful book for children! It has large type and was simple. If I was a parent I would love to read this book to my children! It also is very funny! It even made me laugh! This book teaches the importance of NOT stealing. Hiding and running away ( or swimming! ;) :) ) doesn't mean you won't get caught!
I just STOLE it!
This little fish just stole is little hat from a big fish!
The big fish isn't very happy with this!
Where did he go!?!
The big fish is asking the crab where the little fish went.

Comparing to "Where the Wild Things Are"
The book Where the Wild Things Are is very different from the book This is Not My Hat. Where the Wild Things Are pictures are a lot more detailed than This is Not My Hat pictures. Also it doesn't teach you a lesson. It describe's a kid's imagination. Unlike that, This is Not My Hat talks about a little fish with big thoughts.
