Lovely little book with lots for children to think about!
I had forgotten most of this book except the cover. When the "monster" chasing the hunter was revealed, I remembered that plot twist.
a book discussing a bunch of different people and animals that are following around a fly throughout town.
a fun book much like dr suess's
This book is always a favorite with my preschoolers and Kindergarteners. Its repeating lines makes it easy to have them follow along for the "chorus" much like I knew an old lady who swallowed a fly. The artistry in this book and the words match perfectly. We first see a picture of a boy sitting lazily in a boat pulled ashore on a lake and he is looking at the sky. As he looks at the sky a fly went by. The fly is "chased" by a frog who thinks he is being chased by a cat who thinks she is being chased by a dog etcetera. The boy takes it upon himself to stop the whole menagerie and in the end does just that.
I really think that the moral of not jumping to conclusions plays well especially with the younger audience.
