This would be a great book to use for students ages 4 to 8. It is very basic words and easy to read. There are a lot of things that you could do with this book to create a math lesson.

This is the story R.R. Pottle, a man who loves hats. His father loved canes and his mother loved umbrellas. They lived together in the Pottle mansion. But then his parents pass away and he’s all alone. R. R. dreams of finding his future wife in the rain. He knows she will be wearing the perfect hat.

This small book, endorsed by Reading Rainbow, has a wonderful wistful quality to it. I like that the adults in the book are modeling good behavior. With the exception of the hat shop owner, the characters are well-mannered and polite. They treat each other with respect and expect others to do the same.

This is a humorous book. This book could be used with an Idiom lesson- all about hats!
