October Author Study: Leo Lionni
As October draws to an close, we wrap up our second author study of the school year. Leo Lionni is one of my favourite children’s authors and I felt pretty darn lucky that I got to to introduce some of his books to the kids.
Here are a few of our favourites:
Little blue and little yellow are best friends. What happens when they hug each other? Why, they turn green of course!
I adore Frederick. You think he’s this lazy, little guy but it’s his poetic ways that save the others from the dark and dreary days of winter. I just love that he looks like he’s giving you a big eye roll on each page.
Don’t eat me. I am an inchworm. I am useful. I measure things. Whew! All clear – until that is, he’s asked to measure a nightingale’s song.
And this one is my absolute favourite. These little frogs befriend a baby alligator and think it’s a chicken. Gets me every time.
