The magic hat can turn everything into anything. It moves about the town changing things into animals. Good rhyming book.

I would recommend this story for a sequencing lesson. The magic hat travels from person to person transforming them into zoo animals. It's a rhyming story that includes colorful illustrations and interesting pictures.

When a magic hat floats into town the children are amazed toward the magical changes their elder, loved ones undergo and how the town rejoices together. This book will be a favorite with imaginative illustrations and rhyming text.

Genre: Modern FantasyThis book is a good example of modern fantasy because, even though the time and place could seem possible, the plot line is not. It is about a wizard's magic hat that lands on different people and turns them into various animals. The wizard comes back, gets his hat, and turns everyone back to humans again. There is no way that this would be possible in a real life setting.Critic: Theme

When a magic hat comes out of no where and lands on people's head and turns them into different animals, a magic wizard appears to get his hat back. He then changes all the animals back into people and everyone is happy again. All the magic in this book makes it to be a very good fantasy. Magic hats, wizards, changing people into animals, are all things that partake into the fantasy of this book.A teacher could use this book for practice of appreciative listen with their students. The class could take a trip to the local zoo and find all the animals that were seen in the book. Media: Oil PaintThe setting in this book takes place outside in a park. The use of outdoors is nescessary for the plot and use of wild animals and also makes for a more engaging story.

My son always wears a hat and this was right up his alley. Actually it is really cute and has a nice rhythm to it. My son is 2 1/2 and he waits with anticipation to complete the rhymes.
