How Do You Read to a Rabbit?
Have you ever tried to read to a hippo? A snake? An alligator? It is not easy!! (Though truth be told I have not tried!)
"If you read a bedtime story to a hippopotamus, he might want to sit on your lap. If you read a boa, she may want to hug you goodnight."
An alligator? You can guess what happens then!! A great book to promote reading as well as provide a good chuckle. Using the book to guess what each animal MIGHT do if you tried to read to them would be a great inferring/higher level thinking activity for older kids. Kid would also enjoy coming up with their own "if you read to X animal.....this will happen."
