My love for Oliver Jeffers started on a trip to London when I discovered a book store there with all of these colorful front covers that seemed to pop out everywhere we went. My students have loved reading his books with rich vocabulary and vivid illustrations. Here are the books I used for this unit. Some can be found on Scholastic and all are available on Amazon. In England, some of the titles were different (i.e. “jumper” is used for “sweater”.)
There are various activities and comprehension questions for each of the following books:
How to Catch a Star
The New Jumper (or sweater)
The Incredible Book Eating Boy
Up and Down
Lost and Found
The Day the Crayons Quit
The Way Back Home
The Great Paper Caper
It Wasn’t Me: The Hueys, Book 2
