No, I did not spell that incorrectly. That is the name of the book that my nearly four year old likes the most from the library bag this week. Try reading it without stumbling over the word animal immediately afterward.
This book is a great read aloud about a little boy who goes off to have a picnic and brings back an “aminal.” He tells one kid about what he has. That child tells another, then that child tells another, and so forth until the description has totally changed. The children then go to save the boy from the “aminal” and discover what it really is.
My daughter likes the pages that show what each child imagines in his or her head after hearing the description.
ASL Sign for the Post: To sign animal, place your curved hands at the top of your chest with fingertips touching your chest and slightly wiggle them.
