Who Took the Farmer’s Hat?
by Joan L Nodset, illustrated by Fritz Siebel
In a humorous way, Who Took the Farmer’s Hat? introduces children to ‘perspectives’ and gives the reader an opportunity to laugh and ‘correct’ all the mistakes!
In brief, the farmer loses his hat and every animal he asks says he hasn’t seen a hat, but he or she did see a: fat, round flying bird in the sky, or big round brown mousehole in the grass, or a silly round brown boat. Each one described from their perspective how they saw the brown hat. Who Took the Farmer’s Hat is a brilliant book where illustrations work with the words to tell the story.
Originally published in 1963, this book is still available in paperback and worth an investment.
