Read Aloud & Follow-Up Activities Inspired by the book What If You Had Animal Eyes!? 

The book What If You Had Animal Eyes!? Written by Sandra Markle and illustrated by Howard McWilliam is a beloved book with my kids. We love the entire series, which inspired me to create a unit of study for the senses around using these books to connect to various activities we completed throughout the day. For more details about how I used these activities, please visit my blog post about it at
