Read full description of the books Bread and honey:Before story time begins, prepare cut-outs of the drawing and additions that appear in this story. I used brown craft paper and cut a simple outline of bear's drawing of his mother. I cut out large circles for the eyes from white paper and drew a black dot in them. Next I cut the circles smaller, keeping the outside cut-away rings to use later. I cut rabbit ears from the brown paper. I cut a sliver of a smile from pink paper and then a huge smile from yellow paper. I cut two pink circle to make ears and I also cut pink ovals to put on the rabbit ears. I cut a long neck from the brown paper and I cut a long trunk from the brown paper. I cut a fluffy mane from the yellow paper.
Here's how the story goes. Bear's mother pulls a loaf of bread from the oven just as he is leaving for school. He asks for a slice but is told it is too hot. He is promised a slice spread with (icky-sticky) honey when he gets home from school. While at school he paints a picture of his mother. While walking home he proudly shows off his picture to all his friends. They all love it, but each makes a suggestion for it's improvement.
Owl: "But you made the eyes too small" (tape the circles over the eyes) "Fine work!"
Alligator: "But the mouth needs to be much, much bigger." (add the mouth) "Much better!"
Rabbit: "But the ears are too short." (add the ears) "Wonderful."
Elephant: "But the nose is too small." (add the nose) "Unforgettable!"
Lion: "But you forgot a fluffy mane." (add the mane) "A picture to be proud of."
Giraffe: "But the neck is too short." (add neck) "Perfect."
When bear arrives home he proudly shows his mother her altered portrait. She declares she loves it.
Bear: "Just the way it is?"
Mother: "Just the way it is." And she hung it on the refrigerator for everybody to see.
Then she gave bear a thick slice of homemade bread with lots of (icky-sticky) honey on it.
I can see this done as a play with simple costumes and props.
