The Woods

The Woods By Paul Hoppe
Grades PreK-2

When a boy discovers, at bedtime, that his stuffed bunny is missing he ventures off into the woods to find him. Along the way he comes across some scary creatures, but each time he uses his bravery and problem-solving skills to diffuse a potentially frightening situation. His vivid imagination call to mind Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. I would certainly pair these two together for a bedtime themed/monster themed storytime session. 

Lesson Seed: Stop throughout your reading of this story and ask your students to predict what might come next. When you're finished reading have them draw a story of their favorite cuddly stuffed animal at home having an adventure with them. Let the creativity rule!
