I like this book: The concept is incredibly simple, AND it makes me happy to read. The rhythm carries the reader quickly into the story, slows at the climax, and relaxes in a very comfortable ending. This may be the first PPBF pick where I am not totally enamored with the illustrations, because Eddie’s head gets a little lost on the forest floor, but I’m okay with that – hope you are too!

Resources/activities: Book specific primary teaching resources – HERE; I’m guessing this would be fun to act out, with puppets or ‘for reals’! Print and cut the simple knock-offs below, glue them on popsicle sticks or rilled up scrap paper, and ‘on with the shooooow’!
