Mckee class enjoyed reading this book and thinking of ways to add to the story. As well as all the things that blew away in the text, we came up our own which included, amongst other things, a book, an alien, a teddy, sunglasses and a cap.
The children chose which character they would like to be and why. Most wanted to be the man with the umbrella because it was funny or the twins who lost their scarves. Olivia wanted to be the man with the "inside-outside out umbrella". The balloon and kite owners were almost as popular.
Luca would read the book again because he liked the pictures and Olivia because she liked the front cover. Naomi would read it lots because it is quite short.
Everyone thought it was a funny story and soon realised that you could predict the next item if you looked carefully at the pictures. They also enjoyed the rhyming text and the fact they could read some of the words.
McKee class recommend this book to anyone who wants "a short story with really good pictures that will make you laugh." Alfie. If you do read it, please let us know what you think.
