I Want My Hat Back | Jon Klassen
38 posts | 51 read | 5 to read
A New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book of 2011!A picture-book delight by a rising talent tells a cumulative tale with a mischievous twist.The bear's hat is gone, and he wants it back. Patiently and politely, he asks the animals he comes across, one by one, whether they have seen it. Each animal says no, some more elaborately than others. But just as the bear begins to despond, a deer comes by and asks a simple question that sparks the bear's memory and renews his search with a vengeance. Told completely in dialogue, this delicious take on the classic repetitive tale plays out in sly illustrations laced with visual humor-- and winks at the reader with a wry irreverence that will have kids of all ages thrilled to be in on the joke.

This is a MF book about a bear who lost his red hat and is asking a bunch of different animals in his community if they have seen it. This Theodore Seuss Geisel 2nd place winner would be good for a RT. https://www.candlewick.com/book_files/0763656003.btg.1.pdf This website contains cool discussion questions about the book that relate to setting, symbolism, and observations&inferences. A UDL strategy that aligns with this book would be 3.1,

leximcmillin Activate or supply background knowledge. This UDL aligns with this book because the end is left to imagination, in which students will need to have experience with observation and inference to understand what might have happened. An EL strategy that aligns with this book would be 1. Teach questioning for clarification and 4. Link lesson topic to students‘ prior knowledge. #ucflae3414f19 1mo

I love this book(pub.2011). I think that it was very cute, simple, and great to follow along with. Aside from that, I love the illustrations in almost all of Jon Klassen's books. Overall, I think that this book is great and easy to follow along with.
Aside from all of the illustrations, I love the layout of how the book it written. It is witty and fun throughout. I always enjoy the simplicity of his books and illustrations.

This book is a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor book. It is about a bear who lost his hat so he goes around to ask everyone if they have seen his hat. After asking a few animals he remembers he has seen his hat, on a rabbit, so he takes his hat back and eats him.

I would not use this book in my classroom. I didn't really enjoy this book. It reminds me of the “Are you my mother“ book.

I would use this book in a classroom of children from Pre-K to 3rd grade. It is a great picture book about animals. It is a simple read and one a young child would love to read. It is a good book to see if the children catch on and see if they see the red hat before the bear notices who has it.

This is a Theodore Suess Geisel Honor award-winning book and a “Best Illustration Children's book.“ This book is about a bear who loses his hat and is sad about it. The bear asks all his animal friends is they have seen his hat, but they all say no. He is sad he will never find it. Then he remembers the rabbit he asked is wearing his hat and he gets it back and is happy again! This is a cute and silly book to read to young children of any age.

Oh no! Where did the bears hat go? Bear went on a hunt to find his hat. He asked all of the animals that he ran across and asked if they had saw his hat by any chance. This cute, short RF book would be perfect for IR and RA. This book can be used in the classroom to teach students to have patience and to not take something that doesn‘t belong to them. #ucflae3414su19

Myiab This book won the Theodore Seuss Geisel Award Honor in 2012. UDL 2.5 Illustrate through multiple media. EL 44 Focus on thinking skills; predict, categorize, classify, observe and report (oral-written-
pictorial), sequence, summarize. While reading this book, you can have students predict and share if they think bear is going to have luck finding his hat. https://www.scribd.com/document/161917914/Jon-Klassen-Book-Activity-Kit

Bear questions each animal looking for his hat and each denies seeing it including a rabbit with a red hat on his head. Sitting on my couch with a glass of wine, I cracked up when the bear realized he had seen his hat. Clever and funny. The rabbit gets his comeuppance. We‘ve owned this for a while and I had somehow never read it. #picturebooksatoz #bbrc #letterI

Lindy “Comeuppance” is one way of putting it… love this book SO MUCH! 4mo

My kids all loved this clever, award-winning picture book. At the end, you *know* what the bear has done even tho it isn't stated explicitly. The lesson: don't steal a bear's hat.
(And how cute is author/illustrator Jon Klassen?)

@Caroline2 thank you so much for making me aware of the other books in this series. They were just as cute as the first picture book I read by Klassen. These two both look at stealing, but from different perspectives.

Caroline2 Whey! 😀 so glad you found them. Such a fun series isn‘t it. I laugh at them every time. 😆 6mo

Caldecott and was written in 2011. This is a humorous book that children would really enjoy. The story takes place in the woods with a bear trying to find his hat. He asks a fox, rabbit, turtle, and a snake. He wants to give up until a deer comes along and opens up his mind to remember where the hat was. When the bear finds it he takes it from the rabbit and eats him for what he did.

I Want My Hat Back is a funny and engaging F picture book. It won the Geisel award for being a high quality book for emerging readers. I thought this would be the perfect book for DR but can also be utilized as an RA, SR or PR.

I Want my Hat Back, written and illustrated by Jon Klassen, is a humorous F story that won a Caldecott award. The book follows a bear on his journey to find his hat. This book would be perfect for a RT or an S. The UDL Principle for this could be 8.3 (foster collaboration and community) because a RT would have the children getting involved an interacting with each other in order to tell a story.

KatherineBeckham An ESOL strategy is 14 (simplify your speech by making it slower and redundant). This is especially important if this story is being done as a storytelling. This link provides ideas on how to teach this book in multiple subject areas: http://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/i-want-my-hat-back #ucflae3414f17 2y
kkidwell I adore this book! There are so many ideas and resources to utilize this text in the link you provided. I even noticed that there was a section for incorporating technology. This is something I have difficulty with because I am so old fashion! So, it is always nice to have valid resources to technology incorporation in the classroom. 2y

I Want My Hat Back is a picture book written and illustrated by Jon Klassen, and the winner of the 2012 Geisel Award. This book works well with RA, PR, and IR. I Want My Hat Back follows a bear who is looking for his lost hat and asks animals around him if they‘ve seen it. The animals say they haven‘t seen it until a deer helps the bear see things differently. http://candlewick.com/book_files/0763655988.kit.2.pdf #ucflae3414f17

elifkelly This activity pack includes a character sheet that students can use to cut out and paste to match the characters with their relationship to the bear. This matches EL 30 encourage the use of diagrams and drawings as aids to identify concepts and seeing relationships and UDL 3.2 highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships 2y

I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen is a dark and humorous F picture book, winner of a Theodor Seuss Geisel award and E.B. White Read Aloud award, that would make a fun RT in the classroom. The humor of Jon‘s Hat Series is adored by both children and adults, and there are enough characters to include lots of students in the script. You can find a RT script that I️ created on my AS Glog: https://edu.glogster.com/glog/jon-klassen-2/2peruivfksl/

MadisonCarter The UDL principle 2.2 ‘clarify syntax and structure‘ is important for demonstrating the different tones characters use in the book, as well as identifying when different characters are speaking.
The EL strategy is 46 ‘use discovery learning activities‘ #UCFLAE3414F17

DrSpalding Love, love, love that you cited your Glog which is lovely as your resource. Readers theater scripts make for a pleasurable reading activity in your elementary classroom. 2y

Audrey @jessicaesquire it's confirmed, the rabbit got eaten. Klassen says that sitting on him is more violent then eating him. But the rabbit was food. 3y
