Mem Fox' Shoes for Grandpa

Shoes from Grandpa is a delightful cumulative text about the clothes that a family buys for Jessie. In order to understand the sequence of this book, today the children drew the sequence as I read the text. It helped the children understand the characters and setting, the sequence and the cumulative way that the text works. Understanding this book will help them understand and predict other books by Mem Fox and also other books that have the cumulative story structure.
