I Want My Hat Back

My Book Corner loves when a respected artist, well established in his or her field, turns their hand to children's picture books.  To us that's the perfect endorsement of how important children's books are.

I Want My Hat Back a simple story, told entirely in dialogue.  Bear has lost his hat and talks to various animals asking them if they have seen it.

There are a couple of clever little twists weaved in to the story - these twists will get a discussion going with your little audience and will encourage them, on their level, to be able to start to predict and infer from the text. Literacy skills? Check!  In addition, these twists will also have you grinning at the end!

The gorgeous illustrations in Jon Klassen's picture book will keep you coming back for more.  Jon depicts each animal in his own unique style with neutral, earthy tones allowing the red hat to become the focus when it needs to be.

The repetition of key lines, and the setting of the text on a clear background, mean My Book Corner thinks this will also be a great one for new readers. Take a peek at the trailer below.

Wonderful and funny book

A lawyer friend gave this book to use for our toddler. Great pictures and entertaining story about a bear who has lost his hat. Very interesting way to introduce lyng to children. I really enjoy reading this book to my daughter and hope it teaches her how lyng affects others in a fun and sweet way.
