Love, Love, Love this book!
After we read the book, we went through each page, and created the grass, river, mud, forest, snow storm, and cave. It was a fun way to work on retelling the story.
My daughter is making the snowstorm. She knew it was the wind that was blowing the snow around, and drew the wind in all sorts of directions.
Finally, we went on a walk. Our lawn became the grass, the driveway the river, a tree the forest. When we found the "bear" we ran back into the house and hid under the covers. We made a great literary connection!
