The Berenstain Bears
Old Hat, New Hat

by Stan & Jan Berenstain
part of the "Bright & Early Books for Beginning Readers" series

The bears are out shopping for a new hat, and come across a range of silly, frilly, lumpy, bumpy... hats until they find the one that is just right.

Chances are you read Berenstain Bears books when you were a kid. We did!  :)  But just because this book is several decades old doesn't mean it's not FABULOUS for use in the classroom today.  This book seems like it was written specifically for teaching adjectives!

See Inside
And here is a peek inside. All the pages are follow this sort of format, with adjectives describing the different hats he tries on. Makes this a great book for teaching early adjective lessons (ie: what is an adjective?)
