Owen | Kevin Henkes

This F book is a super sweet PR for young readers. It is about a mouse who has a favorite blanket that he takes EVERYWHERE and to do EVERYTHING. His mom and dad can't seem to get Owen to let it go, so mom comes up with the best solution for when it is time to start school. I believe having the students read this story in pairs will better give them a chance for discussion.

YesseniaN Letting the children read together in pairs will increase discussion habits and share ideas/thoughts. As the children read the teacher can stop by the ESOL students and follow up with questions and connections to make sure everyone understands.

CPettersen This sounds really cute! I definitely want to read this! The art style is so cute! 2w
JennaMichelleCohn This whole collection by Kevin Henkel is amazing: Chrysanthemum, Angelina, etc. when I had pet mice, I named them after his characters. His stories are so well written and have such great positive messages, chrysanthemum specifically! Love that one! 2w

I really likes this book(pub.2012). It is very friendly and easy for children, or any reader, to interact. I was even able to relate to this book. It brought back memories with my old teddy bear when I was younger.
Aside from the story itself, I loved the simplicity of the illustrations. I liked that the backgrounds were mostly plain white but the drawings of Bunny were simple with design.

It was a beautiful fall day today! The days are getting shorter and the temps cooler, but I don‘t mind. Cooler temps = curling up with my book and #blanket. And a happy coincidence, my nails match my blanket!😂 #fallisbooked

This used to be my favorite blanket. As you can see I had to give it up. My dog would drag if off the couch and take it wherever she wanted to lay, usually in the sun. So it become hers. 🤣🤣🤣 #dogsoflitsy

OriginalCyn620 So cute! 🐶❤️ 1mo

I have been obsessed with Halloween and fall blankets lately but haven‘t purchased one. Love a good snuggly blanket for reading on chilly days-the softer, the better. #blanket #fallisbooked
