Peter Rabbit Pop Up Books


 The week before Spring Break we read the famous children's book The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter. 
 Did you know it is the most famous children's book worldwide? Yes it is. I have 4 different copies from 4 different printings. Each has a different illustrator. But they all have the same text. I love this story.


 It has a moral to the story that Peter should have obeyed his mother when she told him not to go into Mr. McGreggor's garden. He disobeys and gets into all sorts of scary trouble. Shoulda minded his mama!
 The kids color the pictures and do a simple retell and glue on pop up pictures of Peter in various situations in the garden. It always turns out really pretty.
I took a few pictures of some of them. The kids chose their own covers from pink, yellow, green or blue. Then they went to work constructing their pop up books. It only took 2 reading periods. They are pretty fast at any task I give them now. 

They are proud of their pop up books.  
Happy Easter Everybody! Hope you all get some good treats from the Easter Bunny!
