Jennifer Cairns was a student teacher at Mastricola Elementary in Merrimack, New Hampshire: When I learned that the students in the class would be creating a "hat book report," I was a little confused. As the information was further explained, I got very excited. I loved that the students could be creative assembling a hat that reflected the story that they read. I was even more excited when I learned that each student would be reading a book written by you. Just to name a few of the items that the hats included there was a red hat with a clock, a big pot of pasta, a chef's hat, a knight's hat with a dragon, a volcano, crayon boxes, and one which included long braids.
Tomie: What a clever idea!
