Recently, my associate teacher gave me this book to create a lesson off of, and I thought it was an excellent book to share with students. The little boy in this story is constantly daydreaming throughout the day, which in turn, gets him in trouble. What happens when he gets to art class, and is able to use his wonders and daydreams and turn them into artwork?
This story teaches students that the different things they question throughout the day are valid and important, and us as teachers and educators should be working these wonders into our lessons. It teaches us the importance of creativity and imagination.
