Who doesn't love the enchanting artwork in Jan Brett's many childrens books? She has written and illustrated some of my favorite books including "The Gingerbread Baby," "The Hat," and "Hedgie's Surprise."
Jan Brett's website has a multitude of resources! It's hard to know where to start. I'll break down some of the highlights for you.
The Activities tab is overflowing with great ideas for little ones. Here is a list of some of our favorite activities from her website:
- Book in a Hedgehog Shape
- Bake Hedgehog Cookies
- Friendly Letter Stationery
- Gingerbread Baby Board Game
- Readers Theater: The Hat
And there are many more amazing activities available from her website. Such wonderful ideas for your little ones!
The Coloring Pages tab is full of great pictures just waiting to be colored. You could put together your own coloring book for the summer!
On the Videos Page you can watch and listen to Jan Brett read some of her books and also watch her draw some of her characters!
We love Jan Brett's work and all the fantastic resources on her site.
