Have you checked out TOON in the Classroom lately? Not only can teachers find lesson plans and activity sheets, but you can also watch kids act out Luke on the Loose, and listen to your favorite TOON Books read aloud by the authors in the TOON Reader! Hear Otto’s Orange Day read by artist Frank Cammuso, and Little Mouse Gets Ready, read by Jeff Smith!

We loved finding the blog of Mrs. Clarken’s class. To teach a lesson on reading a comic strip, she assigned Otto’s Orange Day, and asked the students to comment on what makes a comic different from a picture book. One child wrote in:

“Mrs. Clarken, I think that when he got the lamp he got so, so, so, so, so, pleased but I think he will soon discover that he should not have done that.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
