Can I just say, I loved these characters by Joy Cowley! My kids enjoyed them!
The first character that I was introduced to was: Mr. Whisper!
Mr. Whisper is a sweet man who always talks in a whisper. He talks so low that people can barely hear him. The books were entertaining and my kids loved them. They enjoyed them and begged for more.
The books I read were:
My kids loved tis book. Mr. Whisper has a poem for Miss Candy for Valentine's Day. He tries to share it with her but she can't hear him! Hmmmmmm. What does Mr. Whisper do to share his poem???? I stopped reading the book before the ending and had my students draw what they thought would happen next. Their results were so cute!
Mr. Whisper ears are hurting! The noises around him are so loud. he goes to the doctor but does not hear what he wants to hear What can Mr. Whisper do about his ears? My students had a variety of answers.
Noises, Noises, everywhere! Poor Mr. Whisper! What can he do about all the noises? He tries to resolve the problem through phone calls and conversation but he talks so low that nobody can hear him!!!!
Mr. Whisper was a character that my students and I just loved and can not wait to read more stories and share more of his adventures!!
The next character we read about was Barbie the Lamb!
Very different character from Mr. Whisper. This character made my kids laugh. She is mischievous and fun!
The three books I read were:
This book introduces us to Barbie! Barbie is a fun and mischievous character! When I read this book, I read the title and asked my kids what they thought the book was about. They thought Barbie was going to be a wild animal like a wolf. This was great for vocabulary!
This book is abut Barbie getting a haircut. Barbie was getting sheared and was not going to make it easy for the farmer. We researched sheep and the shearing of their wool. We also learned about spinning wheels. This book had a lot of awesome vocabulary and provided a chance to do some great lessons! We did a text to self connection about how Barbie felt about getting a haircut and how they felt.
When you think of a Pet Day, what animals do you think you will see? This is how I started this book off and their answers were typical. The looks on their faces as we read about Barbie the sheep at Pet day were priceless. They just laughed and giggled throughout!
These two characters by Joy Cowley are enjoyable and fun!
When you think of Joy Cowley, you automatically think of Mrs. Wishy Washy but she has so many other wonderful characters for your kids to experience. The two new characters I read about with my kids were well received and my kids wanted to hear more books about these two characters. What is awesome is that Hameray Publishing has a new character set that includes many of their new characters, Mr. Whisper and Barbie are included!
What is great is that these characters are also available in guided reading sets!!! This made me happy because my kids loved them and wanted to read them all the time. The vocabulary is rigorous yet the kids were able to read them with some assistance! They provide many opportunities for some great book talks and guided reading lessons!!!!
So there are the two awesome new characters that I got to read about and share with my kids! I highly recommend them to be an addition to any classroom and their class library!
