We do a Jan Brett author study in First Grade. Last year, we started with The Hat, but this year, since our Book Fair is "space" themed, we read Hedgie Blasts Off. Hedgie Blasts Off is a very fun science fiction picture book with a planet, Mikkop, with a crater (Big Sparkler) that spews sparkles into space. Except when it doesn't. Hedgie finds himself being the first hedgehog sent into space with a mission to fix Big Sparkler. Find out if his mission is a success and check out Hedgie Blasts Off by Jan Brett.
