Storybook Sunday - If by Sarah Perry

After a few busy weeks at school and a weekend trip to see my daughter play some softball games at ASU, I am enjoying my three day weekend at home!

Today I am linking up with Paula at Paula's Place for her Storybook Sunday linky!


When I was teaching 2nd grade, each year we did a unit on imagination.  I was introduced to the book If by Sarah Perry during a district training.  I immediately purchased the book and read it to my students.  They loved the colorful and imaginative illustrations and I know that you will too!


Here are a few of the fantastic illustrations!  You can see why a bunch of 2nd graders would go crazy over this book - imaginative and a bit disgusting!

If worms had wheels...

 If zebras had stars and stripes...

If caterpillars were toothpaste...

After reading the book, I had each student create their own page for our class book using the same pattern as the book If.  The student were able to really be creative in their imaginative thoughts and illustrations!

Happy Reading,
