Henry’s Map by David Elliot –OPTIONAL

Elliot, David Henry’s Map 40 pgs. Philomel ,2013. $12.67.  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G ; Violence: G.
Henry is an organized pig, he keeps his sty just so. When he decides the farm is disorganized, Henry thinks making a map will help. He starts with his sty and adds all the homes and animals of the farm. When the animals follow him up a hill for a better view, he uses his map to get them all home.
This is a cute book with peaceful harmonious illustrations. At first I really liked it, and could hear lesson plans being presented in my head. But the story takes an odd turn that I think will be confusing for students.
