I like this book because: it got me. Some books just do that. Was it the wry humor, the fun character drawings, the use of existing landscape art in collage? Can’t quite pinpoint, but I keep coming back to this book.

Resources/activities: ask students what makes a suitable pet and discuss why some don’t; make collages with magazine pages of landscapes and drawn characters placed in them. For a GREAT poem, in a GREAT new series from Penny Parker Klostermann, AND a moose – click HERE!

Listen to this:

Perfect Picture Book Friday is still on hiatus for the summer (back next week! Come back for a GIVEAWAY!), but there are still plenty of selections on a themed and alphabetized list, each with teacher/parent resources, on Susanna Hill’s blog HERE

  1. Oliver Jeffer’s is just all right with me. Love his work. Have NOT read this one. Must check library. If they don’t have, must visit Amazon. *waves to Julie* ❤ you!

  2. Oliver Jeffers has a gift for making absolutely perfect children’s books. Lost & Found is one of my all-time favorites! I have to ask — why have you said that PPBF is on hiatus for the summer, even though the posts have still been appearing weekly? Are they usually more frequent? Just curious!
