The third book
in the series by Herve Tullet
hits bookstores on March 29, 2016!
Along with the other aspects of the book, The students enjoyed the opportunity to utter words and phrases like "za-za-za-zoommm."
I explained to the students that they were to answer this question, "Now what do you think we should do?" and that their answers would be the next page in the book.
I showed how the papers I had fit right into the book. After brainstorming and sharing ideas, the students and I reviewed what we noticed about the writing and art in the book and what we thought needed to be on each page.
My library was almost silent for the first ten minutes as students created their pages, and then a slow murmur built into a hum as they approached each other to share their ideas and try them out.
Here's a look at the students' work. I plan to laminate the pages and mount them into a book which I will give to the classroom for the rest of this year and then keep in the library after that.
"Now what do you think we should do?"
How will you play
with Herve Tullet's latest
In this article from Entertainment Weekly, Herve explains how Let's Play came about: “After Press Here and Mix it Up!, I wanted to find another way to explore the dialogue between the book and the reader,” Tullet tells EW. “In Let’s Play!, the dot becomes a character with feelings and emotions. In the text, I use words that encourage the reader to play, gesture, and have fun with the child they are reading with. The book is really a tool for interaction between the reader and child that needs a reader’s voice in order to work.”
