Listen, look, and build. We offer a whole library of projects to help our students get in touch with famous stories.
New for 2016–17, a story of friendship and looking past perceived differences. Josh Holt's Dear Dragon: a Pen Pal Tale is a friendship story in rhyme to help all of us appreciate the person underneath physical differences.
Another new one for 2017 is Strictly No Elephants, a book by Lisa Mantchev and illustrated by Taeeun Yoo. A story of true friendship and one that demonstrates that friends, like pets, come in all shapes and sizes.
New in 2015 and inspired by a Vietnamese folk toy and a book by Yvonne Winer and Tony Oliver, Frog Sings Songs, we celebrate the joy of frog sounds and colors in the hope that they will live on undisturbed in their natural habitats.
Little Hoot the owl is our 2016 design to accompany the charming book by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Jen Corace about a little owl who can't wait to grow up and let his kids go to bed as early as they want. Sweet and funny. Little Hoot>
Inspired by Tomie dePaola's The Knight and the Dragon. A sweet story of a sheepish knight and a clumsy dragon who discover there's more to life than fighting.
Robert Kraus' Leo the Late Bloomer is the story of how a little tiger named Leo bloomed in his own good time is another one of our favorites.
