A new picture book out from Craig Potton Publishing.
Grasshopper’s Week by Tania Norfolk with illustrations by Chris Norfolk.
This lovely story gave me a really cool idea for a poem challenge.
In Tania’s story, a wise, old Tree gives the days of the week new names to teach Grasshopper to notice the world more!
Monday is Wild-Wind-Day.
Tuesday is Bug-Day.
Wednesday is Wobble-Day.
and Sunday is Sun-Day!
The new name helps Grasshopper to see and hear the world about him .. it’s like a little lesson.
It is a delightful book! With gorgeous illustrations.
The challenge: Try thinking up new names for the days of the week and deciding what happens on these new-name days. What characters will you have?
Turn it into a story poem!
