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.
