Todd Parr, author and illustrator has written over 38 children’s books, most of which are about love, kindness feelings, family, taking care of the environment and being and loving who you are. What better time to introduce his books to the girls as we have been exploring ourselves, friends, feelings and families. Many Todd Parr books have given the girls much to think about. We visited Todd’s Website on the smart board and the girls were so excited when he personally talked about his art studio and future books.
After reading several of Todd’s books the girls began recognizing similarities….One day I asked them… how do you know that Todd Parr wrote that book? The answers came….
The girls have made many connections to Todd. These are some of the things we have learned about him and the girls have been amazed that he likes many of the same things as we do!!
