My kids love to choose Read to Someone during Daily 5. The problem occurs when there's not a someone to read to, because all the other someones have made different choices. That's when these guys come in handy.
My mom bought lots of animal hand puppets for me years ago. They live in my library as you see below.
There's not a someone available to read to? Problem solved! They can find one here, and they're the best of listeners too.
