The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane and The Velveteen Rabbit Freebie

I really love these books, and since bunnies and April go so well together, I thought I'd make a quick packet to go with them!


I plan to read Edward Tulane as a class, and then split into pairs/small groups to read The Velveteen Rabbit.  I created a  comprehension packet/mini unit that incorporates the following skills/subjects:  Compare and contrast; science (habitats/ecosystems); research (online and print resources); writing (conventions/editing/adjectives/creating mental images); comparing fiction/fantasy to nonfiction texts; making inferences.  


You can pick up a copy of the comprehension packet at my TpT store by clicking here.

Do you love these books or similar titles?  I'd love to hear what titles you like read that have rabbits for main characters.
