really liked it
bookshelves: children-s-literature

Audience: This book is perfect for all grade school kids. I could see it being read from Kindergarten up to 4th grade. It's a good story that kids could relate to.

Appeal: There are lots of ways to incorporate this story into the classroom. The first thing that came to mind was how perfect the book would be for an Art class or an art lesson. In the story, Bridget loves to draw and paint but she thinks she is only good at it because of her beret. She soon discovers that she is just as talented without her beret. This story would be a good way to get kids to be creative. There is also a part in the story where Bridget uses popular artwork and then incoporates it into a sign for a lemonade stand. This would be a great lesson for older kids. You could have the older students create an artwork based on a popular piece of art. It's also a good introduction into teaching students about popular artwork.
