Do You Know Which Ones Will Grow? by Susan Shea

Published October 20, 2014 by Dagmar

doyouknowwhichHere’s a great book that worked well with my pre-k through K students.  They really enjoyed it. Susan Shea cleverly takes readers from things that are organic and grow and things that won’t grow with rhyming text and unfolding pages.

“If a duckling grows and becomes a duck, can a car grow and become (unfold the page) a truck?”  “If an owlet grows and becomes an owl, can a washcloth grow and become (unfold) a towel?”

This is lots of fun to read to young students.   When they see what (inorganic thing) the author thinks might grow, they laugh and yell (in their best library voices), “NO!”

Have fun with this one!  Many thanks to my friend, Leona, a story teller at our school, for this wonderful recommendation!
