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 train station
-a little boy
-a stuffed bear
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:
Caldecott Award justification
character trait webs
pros and cons of animals living in zoos
what they would pack for a trip and why
