Read in November, 2009

Grade level: Pre-K to 1st Grade (listening)
Schachner’s illustrations are imaginative and colorful, and encompass all of the pages. She uses a multitude of hues to display her scenes, including pastels, as well as vivid, dark colors. Children will definitely find appeal with her creative, comical drawings and differentiating text styles. The text figuratively flies off the page in that it can be found in various positions and styles surrounding the artwork. If two words could be used to summarize this work, they would be ‘dramatic’ and ‘hysterical.’ Children will enjoy following “Skippito Friskito” on his journey as a faux Chihuahua again and again.
Related Content Areas: Social Studies, Art
Lesson Idea: Students will illustrate a picture of Skippyjon on a new adventure of their own creation.
