Bob's Vacation is a fun story about a snowman who travels because snow is not colorful enough for him. On his travels the reader is introduced to colors. Bob can't stay on vacation forever. He must return home. We see how his life changes after he returns from his vacation.
If you are reading this book to a very young child that does not know colors yet, I would point out the color in the pictures. For instance, point to the leaves of the "green tree" because the entire tree is not green. There is also a word list at the back of the book for beginning readers.
- Draw and color a picture about Bob the snowman. Label the colors in the picture.
- Discuss how Bob's activities while on vacation were similar to the activities he participated in at home. How were they different?
- Discuss how Bob the snowman brought some of the best parts of his vacation home. Have you gone on vacation and brought something home? Did you decide to do something different at home after you learned something new on vacation?
- The pictures in this book look like they have been cut from colored papers. Make your own picture by cutting colored pieces of paper and attaching them to a bigger piece of paper with tape or glue.
I read the library binding edition to write this review but it also comes in a paperback version.
