Themes: hats, Queens, London
Opening: The Queen was on her way to visit someone very special when the wind went…
Summary: (from my library catalog) A sudden gust of wind takes the Queen’s favorite hat and blows it all over London, as the Queen’s men give chase.
I like this book because: Seemingly simple, strong compositions using a limited palette take the reader on a rollicking romp. I love books that pack a big punch with a small idea!
Resources/activities: Follow up with THE QUEEN’S HANDBAG; Make hats after listening to a video explained by a Brit – see below
