Item description for Jennie's Hat (Picture Puffins) by Ezra Jack Keats...

When the hat Jennie receives from her aunt is not as fancy as she had hoped, her bird friends decorate it for her.

Publishers Description
Jennie's favorite aunt is sending her a new hat, and Jennie is sure it will be beautiful. But when the box arrives, the hat inside is very plain. She had imagined a wonderful hat with big colorful flowers and even tries to make her own hat from a straw basket Jennie is almost ready to give up on her dream when she receives a fanciful surprise from some very special friends. Ezra Jack Keats's timelessly charming illustrations will leave readers wishing for a dream hat of their own.

Reviews - What do customers think about Jennie's Hat (Picture Puffins)?

Cute with caveat....  Mar 8, 2007
When purchasing a book without reading every word, there is often a drawback.
While it is a cute book, both in illustration and imaginative narrative, there is a reference to wearing a hat for "church" which may present an issue for those for whom this is not appropriate. You can always make substitutes if need be.
Beautiful book and engaging story  Feb 24, 2007
Our baby daughter loves this book. She'd ask for it every day for months. The story especially appeals to her because she enjoys dressing up and she also enjoys birds. The collage illustrations are clever and beautiful.
Hat - tastic!!!  May 10, 2006
Found this book after a recent move - in a box - with a billion other books - I haven't seen it in years - though I do remember and am grateful to find it again - Going to buy a copy for my sister (Jennie)Wonderful and joyous!!!
Classic Children's Book on Hats  Dec 14, 2005
A children's tale about Jennie and her obsession with hats (she even sneezes "HAT-CHOO!"). The book's theme revolves around hat trimmings, a vital element in the success of any finished hat.
A favorite of mine for years!  Feb 8, 1997
I was thrilled to see that "Jennie's Hat" was once again available. I first "met" Jennie in the library of one of the elementary schools that I served as an art teacher. I liked the story and loved the illustrations which feature clever and colorful collages. It was the collage illustrations that led me to adapting an introductory collage lesson that I've presented to my fourth graders for years. It became a lesson that I always looked forward to as the children really enjoyed both the story (which I modified slightly to include children in the class) and the art activity derived from the story. The lesson evolved over my 32 years in elementary education but the story of "Jennie's Hat" has remained a timeless constant. I am ordering a copy of the book as a gift for my student teacher who will hopefully carry on the activity. Carl A. Hess Art Teacher Hamburg (PA) Area School District
