:: how to play ninja cowboy bear ::

On Monday February 13, 2012, we interviewed some of Joshua Creek Public School's keenest kids. We will be posting that video next week. While waiting in the hallway to be interviewed, a few students were kind enough to explain how to play Ninja Cowboy Bear the game. These grade one kids were super stars!

:: I want my hat back ::

I Want My Hat BackI Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is weird and wonderful tale about a bear looking for his hat. The artwork is absolutely gorgeous - beautiful palette and lovely textures!

Funny thing - the first time I read this book, the last two pages were stuck together. I did not see the epilogue with the squirrel. This accidental ending would have been stronger IMHO.

Regardless this is definitely in my top 3 Picture Book of 2011. Can't wait to see what Jon Klassen has in store for us next!
