Look closely and see if you can spot the moose!

This book is excellent for talking with students about being in the place of most potential. It is also an excellent book to use when talking about writing, and using descriptive words that go through the senses. For example, the teacher can easily ask what the students think the woods feel like or look like. ( )

I thought this book was an entertaining read but the illustrations made it even better. There was a hidden moose on every page the children went on their adventure The author keeps a playful voice by talking to the reader some, which I always enjoy. It is definitely a for the younger reader who does not know where Moose live, however it is a good realoud for the lower grades because of the language makes it entertaining and easy to ask questions throughout.

“Looking for a Moose” was a cute picture book. What I liked most about this book was that each page would have a moose hidden in the illustrations for the the reader to find. The moose was hidden so well, that it was not until my second reading that I picked up on him being hidden. Also, this book had a lot of descriptive words written in cool font: tromp, stomp, squeech, squooch. This book did not have a main idea except for finding the moose. ( )

This story is about a girl who grabs her friends to help her look for a long legged moose. They search through the woods and through the swamps. They dont see a moose anywhere so they climb to the top of a hill. Once they get there they see moose everywhere!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763638854, Paperback)

An ear-tickling, eye-teasing romp for little listeners, led by an award-winning author and illustrator

Do you really, really want to see a moose — a long-leggy moose — a branchy-antler, dinner-diving, bulgy-nose moose? Spurred by Phyllis Root's sing-songy text and Randy Cecil's buoyant illustrations, this hunt for an elusive moose through woods, swamps, bushes, and hills is just as fun as the final surprise discovery of moose en masse. Children will laugh at the running visual joke — what is that little dog looking at? — and ask for repeated reads of this satisfying tale.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:00:33 -0400)

Four children set off into the woods to find a moose.
