The Fox and the Fisherman is a tale of friendship and family, originally written in French . . . and if that level of alliteration doesn't inspire you to do a craft brought to you by the letter F, well, I don't know what will!
If You Could Wear My Sneakers (the 20th anniversary edition) by Sheree Fitch, with artwork by Darcia Labrosse, is a collection of poetry in that classic Fitch silly rhyming style that is adored by children and adults alike. Each poem deals with a serious topic though as the book teaches children about the 1989 United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child.
This is the August pick for the Itsy Bitsy Nimbus Book Club and we've created a couple reading extension activities for this book to connect children even further with understanding their rights, and learning about poetry.
