Show and Tell Bunnies by Kathryn Lasky

Show and Tell Bunnies - Kathryn Lasky

Show and Tell Bunnies is a captivating and heartwarming story about a first grader named Clyde, who is filled with worries and fear before his first show and tell day at school.  He searches high and low for an interesting object to bring to school and finally settles on a mysterious fuzzy treasure to bring to class. The object turned out to be a huge surprise and a big hit with his friends as spiderlings hatched from the fuzzy treasure.  The author did an amazing job capturing all the true emotions that a young student might experience at the start of a new school year.  This book would be an excellent choice to read to my lower elementary grades at the beginning of the school year or before our first show and tell.  I would also use this story to integrate a study on spiders in science.
