Little White Rabbit {Book Review and Craftivity}

I was looking for a perfect Easter but not too Eastery craft because I am not technically supposed to go crazy for holidays (but I LOVEEE them, so I get creative!).  I found this ADORABLE one from A Cupcake for the Teacher.

Instead of writing about the Easter Bunny, I decided to do do a response to literature to my new favorite Kevin Henkes book.  Each student picked their favorite part of the story, illustrated it and used invented spelling to describe it.  I am head over heels for how these came out!

The rabbit turned green

The bunny was running away from the cat

Rabbit (is) flying with butterflies

Any my favorites...

The little bunny found his mom!

The bunny kissed his mom.

I also found this awesome video of Kevin Henkes creating this book.  How precious are his beautiful illustrations?  My kids were absolutely in love with this book... I can't wait to show them this clip of a "real" author-illustrator at work!
