I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen


Bear has lost his hat and goes looking through the woods asking various animals if they have seen it.  All the animals say no including a rabbit that is wearing a red hat and seems a little nervous.  Finally, bear realizes he saw his hat on one of the animals (the kids have all figured it out and are saying “duh”) and goes back to get it.  The next thing we know Bear has his hat and a squirrel comes looking for the rabbit.  Hmmmm.

This book is so simple and yet so funny.  What is great about this book is it could almost be read deadpan.  I can just hear the kids roaring with laughter as they figure out what happened to the rabbit.
