Hi Chris,
I have had that elephant for many years. I think I got him at a bookstore but I am not for sure:)

This is such a helpful site in regards to Literature. There is so much information and different variations on how to do things that will grow language in young children. Thanks for the information.

Have anything on Brown Bear, Brown Bear or Mrs. Wishy Washy? I didn’t see them listed above. Always love your ideas and thought you might have used these. Looking for things to share with my on-site coaching teachers.

You know Diane, as many times as I have read Brown Bear – I have never posted anything on it and I don’t think I have read Mrs. Wishy Washy! I better look that up!! You can see ideas for Eric Carle books here: and here:

You will love Mrs. Wishy Washy. Start with the original – with that title. But then there are several more. The books are by Joy Cowley who is from New Zealand. Her books are often used for guided reading. The Wishy Washy series are just a few of her many books.

I’d love to see you post on Brown Bear!

I will try to do that some time and I will check out the Wishy Washy books! Thanks for the tip!

First of all, I love your website. I have used many of your creative ideas here in LaConner, WA. Have you ever created activities for The Three Bears? Just curious. Thanks for all your work you do to inspire me to be a better and more playfyful teacher.
