I'm Not Just a Scribble

Have you heard of the book "I'm Not Just a Scribble"? If not, and you teach early childhood art classes, you should totally check it out. Not only does the book embrace our youngest artists' scribbles as valid, it has a message of inclusion.
I see my PreK students once a week for 40 minutes. I've started using a book to kick off most classes and I'm glad to have added I'm NOT Just a Scribble to that collection. After reading the book we talked about the message and then the students used crayons on 9x12 inch paper to make a scribble and to add other details (friends) for the scribble to play with. 

 The book comes with stickers but when those run out, you can just switch to google eyes! I had the students come over one at a time to choose their eyes and place them where they wanted before I used a hot glue gun to attach. Bottled glue would work as well, but the hot glue dries a lot faster.

What are your favorite books to use for PreK? We'll be using Mouse Paint next week as the students mix colors and Mouse Shapes the week after to introduce collage.
