They All Saw a Cat

This month we are learning about the different children’s book awards  This past week we talked about the Caldecott Award (award given to the illustrator of the best picture book) and read one of this year’s honor award winners They All Saw a Cat by Brendan Wenzel. After reading the book, we talked about how the cat looked different from each animals point of view .  We used prior knowledge about the animals to explain why they perceived the cat as shown by the illustrator.
