The “book hunt”: In groups of two or three, students search for a book whose character is a particular animal, a title or a cover that evokes a theme, a feeling... This animation can be an opportunity to highlight different illustration techniques. It can lead to the choice of one of the books found by the pupils and a reading aloud. 

What is this book about? : From an album, we will make students guess the story using clues, such as the front cover, the illustrations one by one without the text, the front cover and the beginning of the story. Then at the end, read the book so that the students know the “real” story. 

Story time :  After a time of collective discovery of the books, you can offer a reading of albums aloud. Seat the children comfortably so that everyone can make the most of the entertainment offered. Be sure to present several books so that each child can appropriate the universe that suits him best. Books should be age appropriate, illustrations should be visible from a distance (large format books).
