More Than Just a Story

Happy Birthday Madame Chapeau


This month, we're featuring the lovely
Happy Birthday Madame Chapeau, by Andrea Beaty, and Illustrated by David Roberts.

This author/illustrator duo has two other fantastic books, but Happy Birthday Madame Chapeau is a current favorite in our house.  We meet a lonely hatmaker, Madame Chapeau, whom we follow on her birthday as she prepares for her annual restaurant tradition but loses her hat along the way.  The charming  illustrations provide for abundant opportunities to count, to pick favorites, to identify colors, and to spot a silly mouse on several pages.  Your child will encounter numerous new vocabulary words, and there are several opportunities for springboarding into more in-depth studies.  Join my tots and me as we stroll along and celebrate with Madame Chapeau.

Check out the
Andrea Beaty's website for more information and activities with this fantastic book!
