Characters in Kindergarten Library Classes #cesuvt #resvt

RES kindergartners are learning about book characters and their characteristics in library class. They have learned that book characters can be people, animals, robots, aliens...whoever makes the action in a story happen!

So far we have shared Scaredy Squirrel by Melanie Watt,  Olivia by Ian Falconer, and I Am Too Absolutely Small for School by Lauren Child (featuring Charlie and Lola). The students have brainstormed many of these characters' characteristics: Scaredy Squirrel is scared AND brave, Charlie is a boy, Lola likes to talk on the phone. The students decided that Olivia's favorite color is red, even though that's not written anywhere in the words of the book. Can illustrations give you information about characters too?
