This is a book about the life of a shell, in a human's house. He was on a blanket, but when a human moved the blanket, he fled through the air, and tells about everything through his perspective. This is a silly book, but it would be useful when talking with the class about different people's perspective, and how situations might look and feel different to others.

Read in the Harvard Co-op. The print book lacks the voice from the video, but it still made me laugh a time or two. Not sure what children make of Marcel, but I enjoy him. ( )
