Reading Pouch!, written and illustrated by David Ezra Stein, will create instant connections for preschoolers and kindergarten students. They know what it is like to be thrust into a new world like Joey and will be able to discuss how we can become more confident in new surroundings. Pouch! also is a good vehicle for teaching prediction and cause and effect to primary students.
You should visit David's website to see The Making of Pouch! This is a great teaching tool for showing students how the writing process works for one particular author.
