A special 10th anniversary edition of this wonderful winter tale!

This wonderfully heartwarming winter story about forest animals' curiosity and confusion over a snowman that has magically appeared in their woods, has become a festive favourite year after year.

Stranger in the Woods is an amazing photographic fantasy book. Carl R. Sams truly engages readers with a winter themed story. This realistic fiction book has won The Benjamin Franklin Award as well as the International Reading Association Award. This book would be great in the classroom for lessons on story sequencing or winter animals/environments. Would work as a RA because of the amazing visuals.

Laura.S UDL principle 1.3 regarding alternative ways for visual information is represented well in this book because the pictures help the students to become more engaged. This also aligns with EL strategy 42 in that it teaches sequencing and how a story flows. https://thehappyhousewife.com/homeschool/stranger-in-the-woods-lesson-plan (edited) 4y
Laura.S The website has multiple lesson plans that could be used for this book! #UCFLAE3414SP18 4y
Ryanne.H I remember you showing this in class! This looks like a book everyone should have in their classroom libraries. I think many children will love this book for its realistic pictures. Awesome post 😊 4y
Laura.S @Ryanne.H I definitely agree that it should be in classroom libraries! The pictures really do engage the child and make them want to read the book. 4y
DrSpalding Wonderful post. Books that can engage the reader while also teaching content, for instance science, are excellent additions to your classroom library. Well done. 4y
