Here is a peek at some of the BEAUTIFUL illustrations:
Aren't they GREAT! Unfortunately, I just looked the book up on Amazon and there are 2 copies for $61.00......far out! If you come across a copy in a store somewhere, you should definitely pick it up. I got mine while I was teaching (in Australia).
After reading the story, we made our own caterpillar. I drew the letter C and Channing stuck the circles down.
We then added clouds (which we should have done FIRST).
I cut clouds out of blue paper (so it was easy for Channing to see on the white background of the caterpillar..... ....and then we painted around them using blue watercolor paint.
Channing's favorite part was snipping the grass.
I'm going to link this to StART.
