I kind of cringed a little bit putting this book on hold at the library. I knew my daughter would love it as she loves to collect things and I was a little afraid we'd end up with a used Popsicle collection and a million feathers and rocks. So far so good and it's a super cute and creative story. The collage illustrations are cute too! ( )

The author, Marthe Jocelyn, portrays the art of collecting in Hannah’s Collections, in a delightful manor. Hannah, like most kids her age, loves to collect things. She has a collection of hair barrettes, popsicle stick, buttons, leaves, rings, “8 keys that didn’t lock things anymore”, “5 clothespins that she kept in a polka-dot bag” and many more. One day Hannah’s teacher asked the students to bring in a collection. Hannah is worried she wouldn’t be able to make up her mind on which one of her collections to bring in to share with her class. How was she going to choose just one collection from the many she had gathered? She loves all her collections. She keeps all of her collections in her bedroom at home. Her biggest one is her buttons. “She had 153 buttons. She counted them every time she found a new one. She sorted them in cupcake tins, sometimes by size, sometimes by shape, sometimes by color.” She also enjoys making patterns with her popsicle sticks. Turning them into triangles, X’s and lines. Marthe Jocelyn exemplifies Hannah’s collections by using real life items in her illustrations. Will Hannah be able to choose a collection? Or will she end up empty handed on Monday at school?
This book is a good introduction for a Science lesson on the three different classification charts: Binary and Hierarchical Classification and the Diachotomous Key. The book gives several different ideas on what students can collect and how to classify. The students can bring in a collection of their own to sort, graph, classify and compare. This is a great book for early primary grades. ( )
