I bought a paperback copy of this book at our local county storehouse for 25 cents. It was in great condition.
Jan Brett's books are so fabulous and The Hat is no exception. She is such a gifted illustrator and author and makes so many great resources available on her website. In the bag with the book I included some animal puppets that I printed from Jan Brett's website. Before the book drop I read the story to my boys and they acted it out with the puppets. That's one great benefit of doing this........I'm reading and doing activities with my own two boys even more. I LOVE Jan Brett's books and own most of them. You can find some more activity ideas for this book over at Wondersome Storytime.
