Where’s Walrus? and Where’s Walrus? and Penguin? are two fun picture books. No words. And none are needed for an entertaining story. Actually, I like that I can create my own telling of the plot for my listener. Both books have been read many times already. Large bold illustrations are used for a hidden but obvious hide and seek game. These titles are two book shelf keepers.

Bored with life at the zoo, an adventurous walrus escapes to the outside world. With the zookeeper in hot pursuit, Walrus cleverly tries on all sorts of hats to disguise himself.

Where's Walrus?

When Walrus escapes the zoo with his new friend Penguin, their adventures are twice the fun!

40 Craft Projects and Activities to Spark Children’s Storytelling

Emily K. Neuburger

Children love to make up stories, and these 40 creative projects and activities encourage them to free their storytelling instincts. Younger children will love making story stones and a storytelling jar, and then will love using them to create stories of their own, while older kids will enjoy word grab bags, story walks, and journaling exercises. For everyone ages 5 to 12, whatever their reading level, this book has everything needed to spark an infinite number of child-created stories.

Many projects in this book can be made with re-purposed materials around the house or outside.

My thanks to Storey Publishing for allowing me to review this book. This book was provided in exchange for an honest review. No other compensation was received.
