The children and I loved ‘Guess how much I love you’ by Sam McBratney. In fact, we loved it to the moon and back.
After reading this delightful book, we made bunny notepads and carrot pencils to record special thoughts.
We used furry fabric to cover exercise books. You could use felt, another fabric or even coloured paper instead. The children drew an outline of the front and back of their book on the reverse of the fabric. I helped them to cut it out. They then used strong white glue to attach the fabric to the front and back of the book.
They cut out fabric for eyes, string for whiskers and fur for floppy ears. All of these were attached with strong white glue. We used heart shaped stickers for the nose but you could use fabric or even a pom pom instead.
The carrot was made simply by wrapping green and orange pipe cleaners around a pencil.
