Have You Read This One?

Recently I submitted my first book club order for the year and while looking through the brochure this book's cover illustration caught my attention.  
Have you seen this one?  
I bought it simply because he looked so sassy and I just had to know 
the story with the red marker.  
I was not to be disappointed, either. 
When the book arrived, I didn't proofread it before sharing it with my young friends.  
(Isn't that terrible?)  
I thought with illustrations like this, it's GOT to be a winner.
And it was.  
Hands down one of my new favorites.
The day after we extended the book with this craft.  Aren't the results just beautiful?!
I love the little "lefty" Chester.  
My kiddos thoroughly enjoyed this project.  
They talked of nothing but "Chester" for the remainder of the afternoon.  
And since I'm trying to create life-long readers, I call that a success. 
If you're interested, I'll be posting the templates for this project
 by the end of the week.  
Happy Reading!
