This is a true picture book. There is no text. This book could be used to illicit conversation or narration with a student or class. At times it may be hard to follow, because the illustrations are not always in a regular order or pattern on the page. However, the pictures do tell a detailed story

This book would be great to teach kindergarteners about picture walks. With the book only having pictures you could really get the students thinking about what is going on and get creative with what they think the author is wanting us to know. It’s a great way to introduce looking at the pictures

I think this book would be great for a 2nd or 3rd grade classroom. I would read it to both boys and girls. I would tie it into a lesson of retelling. Each student re-writes the story in his/her point of view. I think my audience would enjoy this book because the pictures are very vivid and colorful
