#101 - Go Away Big Green Monster by Ed Emberley

Summary: This clever series of die-cut pages lets children construct and then deconstruct a big green monster. The book starts with a black page, and two round eyes gleaming through the text. "Big Green Monster has two big yellow eyes." Each page adds a new adjective-laden element, including a "long bluish-greenish nose" and "scraggy purple hair"

Suggested Activity: The World in Different Colors

Begin this activity by giving each child a cardboard tube, rubber bands, and different colors of plastic wrap. Show them how to use the rubber bands to hold the plastic wrap over the end of the tube.
