We have been reading one of my favorite stories of all time this month with The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. We are continuing our work in our Reader's Notebooks as well as our Literacy Strategies. We also read The Velveteen Rabbit and have found so many connections and parallels between the two stories. We have also started reading Eggs for our Read Aloud and have found even more connections and similarities among the three stories. This provides a wonderful opportunity for comparing and contrasting characters, settings, plot and themes!
