Reading with pictures instead of words kind of throws me off, but I think I can make this work for jungle stories at my outreach program tomorrow.

I loved this book. It could be a mentor book while writing. Students could write a story that includes pictures like the book. Along with the story, they will have key for what the pictures represents. I like the contrast in writing. Students can relate to using the pictures to tell a story.

Students can learn about the habitats of animals. This would be good into to a science lesson. Students could research and draw about the habitats of animals.

This pictures and words weave together to create the story about 4 creatures attempt's to find a new home in the woods. Both kids (ages 2 and 5) were able to actively participate in 'reading' the story through the repeating pictographs. Great approach to a kids book.
