This book is about a bunch of materials; yarn, string, buttons, funny shaped glasses, feathers, you name it. They all gather together for a class picture and, like most class pictures, it is chaos. Several things are late, including the most important material...Glue! Eventually, they all get there and Glue helps everyone get ready and the picture is taken. The final page of the book folds out so it is actually 4 pages wide and it is a picture of all of the materials. However, Glue put all of them together and there are bodies and faces created from of these various materials.
I thought this book was really creative and really fun! I was reading it trying to figure out where it was going and how it would end and then when they all came to together to make faces and bodies it was almost like a surprise ending. The illustrations are from cut out paper and I think it really makes them stand out and gives them a sort of 3D effect. I think this book would be great for children because it takes simple things like buttons and yarn and turns them into characters and I think it would be great for encouraging students to "think outside the box."
