This book, a Caldecott Honor book, is about a little mouse who loves his yellow blanket. His neighbor tries to convince his parents to detach him from the blanket and they try..

I would use this book in my future classroom, because it is a cute story and teaches children that it is okay to have an attachment to something as long as it is not taking over your life.

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.

cassandram Very interesting book! Definitely would want this book at my preschool for those children struggling to give up their blankets/pacifiers. 1mo
CPettersen This sounds really cute! I definitely want to read this! The art style is so cute! 1mo
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! 1mo
kradebaugh Love love this book. So cute so much fun. 1mo

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.
“Small Bunny and Blue Blanket were always together.“

My mom is a quilter and I asked her to make me a Autumn quilt. This is the top of the quilt when we measured it to the king sized bed. #blankets #fallisbooked @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

In Oct ‘97 favorite book of my 5, but my 7 thought the lovely illustrations were disproportionate and it freaked him out. And then! The elementary art teacher requested a meeting - please don‘t stifle your son. His proof - a perfectly proportionate construction-paper bat which to my eye looked pretty much like the 60+ other bats. But we heeded well this sage advice!

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Beautiful 🧡🧡🧡 2mo

mdm139 Sounds like he has an artist‘s eye. He may like the new Dr Seuss The Horse Museum 2mo
marleed @mdm139 I have such great respect for art teachers and the need to keep art in schools. Two years later in a different school an art teacher again called and suggested a city run program. Logistically, I couldn‘t get him there. So she took him and I picked him up! 2mo
marleed @OriginalCyn620 Thank you! 2mo

It‘s a dull, damp day in Cheltenham today, almost enough to leave me #longing for a #blanket to snuggle up under, with a good book and a mug of hot chocolate

Owen is an adorable F picture book about a young mouse who struggles to give up his favorite comfort item. In the end his family works together to find a way to help him keep it around all the time! It won a caldecott for the beautiful pictures inside. For this book I would do a RA preferably with kindergarteners towards the beginning of the school year. http://web.uvic.ca:8080/wits/pdfs/schools/books/owen/owen.pdf this lesson plan is perfect for

ebrown incorporating ESOL students into the classroom using ESOL strategy #46 “use discovery learning activities (hands on activities)” because in the lesson plan it specifically blocks out time for students to draw about their favorite comfort item. This also coincides perfectly with the UDL strategy for comprehension in that it activates the students background knowledge. #ucflae3414f19 2mo
DrSpalding Very nice Post! His books are a must for the primary classroom. Children love the mice and the very realistic stories that go along with them. They are very easy to relate to. 1d
