When you read the story to the children, they can point to the ear and nose whenever you mention them. If you have a hare toy, you may want to try to give it a red nose and a blue ear to help you out! If you have toys for the other animals in the story (duck, fish, bird, fox and rabbit) children can join in by passing them around when they come up in the story.

This is a lovely short story which can be used just for the pleasure of reading/listening to German sounds and rhymes. The illustrations are clear and pretty making it easy for the children to understand what is going on. It is also a positive story about accepting yourself for who you are and also about how the things which you may think are bad can turn out to be good for you.

You can use the story to introduce or reinforce adjectival agreements as well as body parts and/or colours. You may also want to focus on the rhyming sounds and phonics. I think the children could also write their own versions of the story with a different animal and different body parts and colours, though they may not manage to make it all rhyme.

Topics or themes:
Animals; colours; body parts; accepting yourself

Adjectival agreement, past tense
