Finding Winnie

Another fabulous Nutmeg nominee book this week, Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World's Most Famous Bear by Lindsay Mattick. This book won the Caldecott last year!

This is the true story of how the most popular bear in the world, Winnie the Pooh, became a series of beloved books. The story involves:

- a trapper

-a soldier

-a train station

-a war

-a zoo

-a little boy

-a stuffed bear

-an author

Ask your child if they can tell you how all of those things came together to become the series of Winnie the Pooh books.

The students got to complete many activities based on the book including:

cover redesign

Caldecott Award justification

character trait webs

pros and cons of animals living in zoos

what they would pack for a trip and why
