Not-So-Fuzzy Handkerchiefs

The Summer Virtual Book Club for Kids picked Kevin Henkes for their August author. He has many wonderful books and we enjoyed so many!

  We chose the book titled Owen for our project. The story is about a young mouse who has a yellow fuzzy blanket he takes with him everywhere. He is soon to start school and his Mom and Dad don't want Owen taking the dirty, old blanket with him. After several failed attempts, mom mouse has a clever solution. She makes several handkerchiefs from the not-so-fuzzy blanket so Owen can have his beloved blanket with him always!

Inspired by the book, we let our imagination drive us in what we would do with Owen's handkerchiefs.
Little Mister, of course, made several hats. He also played with magic carpets, a bandana, an airplane, and a speeding mailman. He also discovered it makes for a great game of peek-a-boo!

How could I have forgotten the all-important cape
