I found Posy by Linda Newbery and Catherine Rayner when I was CTC yesterday and instantly fell in love with this beautiful picture book!Posy!
knitting tangler… Not only did I need a copy, but I gifted one to my friend Carol. I was pleased as punch to be able to find a gem for her for a change. (Very hard to do! The first book I had selected for Carol for Christmas had to go back and be replaced since it turned out she already had read it!) I absolutely love the illustrations by Catherine Rayner. It’s so easy to imagine how soft she would be to pet, her curly whiskers give a little peek to her personality, and she reminds me of all the reasons I convinced my soon-to-be-husband (1996) that I needed not one, but two kittens. I love the big accessible font that will pull kids into the story. Even the jacket flap is written in a font meant to read by kids. Follow delightful kitten Posy as she bounces and bounces through her adventure- filled day.
It’s easy to imagine what you could do with older elementary or intermediate students just using the text. Each page has an engaging illustration and a two words…
