Summary: Creepy Carrots is about a young bunny that loves carrots. he eats carrots every chance he can until one day, he has an unusual feeling that he is being followed by carrots. Every corner and turn he feels as if carrots are chasing him. He finally comes up with a plan to build a huge fence around the garden that holds all the carrots and it's the perfect solution to his problem. He is never haunted by carrots again!

Personal reflection: I really enjoyed this book because of the illustrations and the front and back cover of the book. The cover of the book shows that the story will be scary before the reader even opens it. The story is exciting and I think it would be very effective with holding students' attention and the fact that the story is scary makes the book fun to read.

Classroom use: I would use this book during Halloween as a fun book to read to the kids to get them excited for the holiday. I might also ask the student's to create their own scary stories using food as the main source of the haunt! I could also use the book as a concept book to illustrate getting over fears and solving your own fears.

Creepy Carrots is a modern fantasy book about Jasper Rabbit. This book is modern fantasy because carrots and bunnies can not talk or walk or do what people do. Jasper Rabbit loves eating carrots. He always wants more and more and each day he goes back to the same field to get another. One day, the carrots came up with a plan, and they began to follow Jasper Rabbit around at night. Jasper gets scared of the carrots and whenever he sees the carrots he tries to show someone that they are following him, but the carrots hide and no one believes that Jasper is seeing carrots. Eventually, Jasper gets tired of being afriad of the carrots, so he decides to build a big wall around the carrot field. After he builds the fence the carrots are excited and throw a party because their plan to keep Jasper from eating them was successful. ( )

This book has a good beginning, middle and end for young readers to see the difference between the three. Also, this is a good mentor text for teachers to use when teaching students how to write beginning, middle and end stories. ( )

Creepy Carrots by Aaron Reynolds is a great introduction reader for the children who want to start reading scary books. This book manages to balance funny thoughts with frightening times, all which are relatable to a child. I can understand why it is a Caldecott winner; the imagery, writing, and illustrations are all excellent. I really enjoyed this book because it brought back childhood memories of being scared for me. At one point Jasper Rabbit yells for his dad, making sure the creepy carrots are not hiding in the dark in his room. I think everyone can relate with this moment at one point in their lives, from Jaspers point of view or from even his parents. I think this book is directed to children from ages 5-10, but it also just depends when a child is ready for something a little spookier. The book kept my interest because of its slightly mysterious plot, but my favorite part was the illustrations. The drawings are all black and white, except for the orange splash of color that was used for the carrots, and other objects Jasper thought were the creepy carrots. Using only black and white kept the book mysterious and the splash of orange drew ones eyes to the carrots. While this book might not be used in school it would be a great to read during Halloween.

This book is full of humor, suspense, and fantastic design. In the classroom, it would be a great tool to ask children what they think is really going on in the story or to make predictions, as whether the carrots are truly creeping or not is unclear until the end. ( )
