We picked this book up because my mom grew up with the illustrator. I really like her style.
This a book about the seasons and what kind of fort you can build each time. In winter, you build an snow fort. In the fall, a tree house fort. The forts in the book are very nice and elaborate. They might not be what a kid could build but they could do it with help. They could build the tent one or the box one or my favorite one – the cushion one.
This is a book that helps you use your imagination. You could read out loud and talk about the fort you would build. I would build a cushion fort.
I recommend this book to parents reading to their kids and teachers wanting an imagination project. Imagine all the forts the kids would design. Imagine what kids could build with a quilt and some cardboard.
Off to go build a fort.
