|The best combination since peanut butter and chocolate!|
Bob Shea is one those authors I adore, but one I never think to purchase! I am not sure why this is, but when I saw Don't Play With Your Food at my favorite bricks and mortar bookstore, Cover to Cover I knew today was the day I would start my Bob Shea collection.
Buddy is a monster and determined to eat these cute little bunnies~ RAH! When Buddy asks the bunnies to jump into his mouth the bunnies scramble to show Buddy all the fun he could be having. It isn't long until Buddy realizes he has made friends with the bunnies and how could even a monster like Buddy eat his friends?
As I was reading this book I found myself thinking about the connection between these crafty bunnies and the creepy carrots in Aaron Reynolds' and Peter Brown's Creepy Carrots. I can't wait to share this book with the kids and see the thinking they'll bring to this fun story!
Besides just enjoying this great story I can see opportunity to discuss character feelings, actions of characters and Bob Shea's crafting choices.
I decided to let you see just what the Primary Perspective was on this great read! (Volume is low sorry)
This story lends itself perfectly to conversations about community, appreciating others, seeing your own talents and gifts and taking care of others.
