“Well she had no choice...Trixie bawled. She went boneless. She did everything she could to show how unhappy she was”.

Knuffle Bunny | Mo Willems

This book is funny and follows the story of a toddler with her “knuffle bunny“. It would be a great read in a k-1st classroom. The illustrations are creative and eye catching. The use of drawing and photos is also a great aspect.

The story follows little Trixie, who embarks on a hilarious adventure with her beloved Knuffle Bunny, only to realize that communication barriers between adults and children can lead to amusing misunderstandings. Willems' distinctive blend of expressive illustrations and minimalistic text creates a relatable and endearing tale that both parents and young readers will enjoy.

The illustrations in this book are very creative and use different elements. The background of the pictures are real photographs taken from the city. They gave illustrations of the characters put overtop of the photographs, so it is as if they are really traveling through the city.

They eventually make it to the laundry mat, start their laundry, and make their way back home.

Knuffle Bunny is a story about a little girl named Trixie who goes to the laundromat with her dad, she brings along her favorite stuffed animal to help out. She helps her dad load the washers and they head home. When she realizes Knuffle Bunny is gone... she needs to figure out how to communicate with her dad that they have to go back. The issue is, she cant talk yet! Her father has to guess what is going on with Trixie and why she is screaming

“And those were the first words Trixie ever said.“

This is my favorite portion of the story, because it makes you think back about your first words and think about what may have caused you to say those words.

This is a great story to get the students to think about a time where they lost something and the emotions that they may have conveyed at that period of time. It also gives students the topic of how important body language is and how to express themselves in a variety of ways.

In this story a very important stuffed animal named Knuffle Bunny Gets lost.The graphics slog the story are visually appealing, the two realistic and drawn story pages make for an attention grabber. Many children will be able to relate to the feeling of losing something you love or even not being able to communicate what you are feeling.

This RF Caldecott Honor book by Mo Willems would be a great book to do an author study (AS) with Knuffle Bunny Free and Knuffle Bunny Too: A Case of Mistaken Identity and so many other popular books written by Willems such as the Pigeon series and the Elephant and Piggie books. This book would also make for a fun choral reading (CR) with fun made up words! #ucflae3414sp21

Chaseb Many students could relate to Trixie when she looses her stuffed animal and gets very very upset!! Finding Knuffle Bunny was a family effort but the bunny was found, thenTrixie‘s first word is “Knuffle Bunny”

Thanks @Buechersuechtling for the tag!

I would be Knuffle Bunny. ❤️

We gets lots of snow and nasty cold temps. The snow wouldn‘t be bad, but it comes with the negative wind chills and the ice. I don‘t like the combo of it all together and I hate driving in it. I‘d rather have fall temps and pretty flowers all year.

A few more of our favorite children‘s books to read aloud at our house. The BabyLit books, Ladybug Girl series, and mini myths series are also ones we love. I tried to pick books that aren‘t already classics, obviously those rank high on our list as well. What am I missing?

This RF book written by Mo Williams won the Caldecott Medal in 2005 and it was well deserved. In this book a little girl goes to the laundry mat with her father when she realizes her most prized possession has gone missing. I think you could turn this book into some fun and make it a S book that you use in the classroom. #ucflae3414su20

marissamaddox UDL 3.2- Highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas,
and relationships- There are good text to self connections that I think will make kids relate to this book.
ESOL 10- Teach think, pair and share strategies in cooperative groups- you could have students think of times they've lost something meaningful to them and share with partner or class.

Knuckle Bunny is a RF book by Mo Willems that has won a Caldecott in 2005. It shares the story of Trixie and her dad taking a trip to the laundromat and leaving behind her beloved stuff animal. The images in the book are so unique because it combines photographs of Brooklyn with cartoon drawings. This is such an adorable story that would be great for a simple IR. Or if you wanted to incorporate a lesson plan with this hook this site #ucflae3414f19

cassandram Is great https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/knuffle-bunny-.... For a UDL principle I would use 3.2 by highlighting patterns within the story, such as text bubbles. Then for the ESOL strategy I would use 4 which links lesson to students prior knowledge. This could be to ask students when was a time they lost something super important to them. 5y
DrSpalding You selected high-quality books and high-quality resources such as Scholastic. This would be an excellent story for students to make text to self connections. 4y

This RF book won Mo Willems the 2005 Caldecott Honor. Trixie goes to the laundromat with her dad when she realizes her beloved stuff bunny is missing. This book would be great for RA and S. ESOL strategy 9, “Teach note-taking strategies: T-lists, time lines, etc.,” would work well here, especially if one were to conduct a lesson on the beginning, middle, and end of a story. #ucflae3414f19

JennaMichelleCohn When focusing on beginning, middle, and end, UDL 3.2, “Highlight patterns, critical features, big ideas, and relationships,” and 6.3, “Facilitate managing information and resources,” would work well. http://pigeonpresents.com/content/uploads/2017/08/knuffle_teachguide.pdf this guide comes from Mo Willem‘s site itself, and focuses on diving deep and really understanding the story from the author and illustrator himself. 5y
Tinks This book remind me of when my daughters lost their stuffed babies and were devastated over it. I am definitely going to look into this book. 5y
DrSpalding I have not seen this as a storytelling but I think it would work quite well! There are so many text to self connection that children will make with this realistic fiction title. Excellent alignment. You could not have picked a better resource. 4y

My professor asked us all to create blogs, where we‘ll post our homework & assignments. (Happy to share mine if folks are interested; I‘m proud of my design theme but there‘s not much on it yet). Our first assignment is to write about a favorite picture book. I haven‘t written the entry yet but I decided to go with “Knuffle Bunny.” This meant that I wandered into a laundromat & weirdly did a quick photo shoot even though I had no laundry to do. 😅

monalyisha Note: It‘s not *much* easier to choose a favorite picture book than it is to choose a favorite book altogether. “Knuffle Bunny” is definitely up there in terms of read-alouds but I‘m not saying it‘s my hands-down fave. “Interrupting Chicken” is also a strong contender — maybe a little bit ahead of KB, tbh. I just think KB will make for a more interesting blog post. 😉 (edited) 5y

This is a cute story about a baby (Trixie), her father, her mother, and her beloved knit for bunny. Her family comes into a sticky situation when they realize they lose the loved bunny somewhere along the way to the laundry mat, and that their daughter is going to be very upset without it. Luckily, the dad rushes back to find it in the wash. The story ends on a happy note with Trixie sharing her first words- KNUFFLE BUNNY!!!

ally11301 An ESOL strategy that can be aligned to this book would be #15 which is to reinforce the key ideas presented again and again, such as when Trixie was blabbing and making a scene because she lost her teddy bear. It gave the idea that something was wrong which will help ESOL students! 5y
ally11301 An UDL that aligns would be 3.1 because it gives background knowledge to kids who remembered having a teddy bear that they love/loved. 5y

I think that the colorful images against the dark backdrop not only helps to emphasize the important parts in the story but also is entertaining for the children to look at. I love this book choice!!
