Hats and Chickens

I love hat books and our collection has many! One of my favorite activities to do with kindies this time of year involves making an accordion book where children help illustrate for the chicken-main character.

"This is not the perfect hat" is repeated three times on successive pages with the chicken wearing unimpressive hats then ends with "This is the perfect hat!". In the final picture, children have een very creative in their rendition of fabulous-- everything from full flower gardens to submarines. Ask your child to share!
