really liked it
bookshelves: animals-and-insects, mathematical-concept, vocabulary, feelings

This book could be used in early childhood classrooms for teaching different concepts to different age groups. For example it could be used to teach time to 5 year olds, animals and insects to 3-4 year olds and vocabulary to 2-5 year olds. It is also an interesting way to teach comparisons like big and small to children. When we are discussing social skills like sharing this book would help children understand how simple and easy it is to share and be happy.

This story can be reenacted in the classroom as a role play. Children could dress up as different animals and insects in the story and act the whole story out. They could be challenged to act it out with different endings too.
