Why should every kindergarten teacher have these books?
If you have never come across these books head over to a bookstore because you are in for such a treat. Mo Willems is the author and these stories are about his daughter Trixie and her mishaps with her stuffed bunny. She has a stuffed animal (Knuffle Bunny) that is her all important cuddle toy. Any five year old can connect to the text and relate to these stories. I am so in love with the fact that the settings are in black and white in the form of photographs and the characters are drawn by the author in color, like cartoons. This is the B.E.S.T mentor text to use when teaching about story elements and you want them to understand character and setting! I love these so much! The stories are tender and loving and every single child has the background to connect to them. As a parent you will laugh out loud and be reminded of all the crazy things you did out of unconditional love for your own kids. Mo Willems is a rock star author. The last book will make you cry. My partner adores these stories and I love to open up my trainings with them so all teachers can fall in love with them as much as we have.
I know others have talked about these books but it is just a reminder that these are stories kinder kids will ask for over and over again.
Kathy and I are in this book together. Isn't this idea adorable? Wouldn't this be great to use in your classroom? Kids would love taking a picture with a friend inside of a giant frame. Kathy is so full of life and has a real passion for teaching. Her material was fantastic and I really loved meeting her. My friend Amber from Kindergarten Rocks was in this class with me. We had a blast!
