Mustache Baby by Bridget Heos is a hysterical read aloud that has kids and adults giggling from beginning to end. In the story Baby Billy is born with a mustache. All is fine with his family, at first Billy uses his mustache for good. Keeping the peace as a police officer, taking care of animals as a cowboy, and leading a three-ring circus. But then, Billy's mustache suspiciously begins to turn upwards and becomes a BAD GUY MUSTACHE. He's a bank robber, a cat burglar, and train robber. With hysterical pictures your kids will be rolling!
After reading, my class had a bit of fun making mustache disguises and playing Pin the Mustache on the Baby. I should warn you that this read aloud was a special reward and didn't link to any specific lesson. However, it would be easy to talk about figurative language OR a great way to connect internal vs. external character traits.
If you're a kindergarten teacher...sigh, my dream grade...and you teach a letter of the week, Mustache Baby would be perfect for M! When I worked with preschool aged children, I drew mustaches on my kiddies with a cheap eyeliner pencil for a Mustache Monday. SO CUTE!
BUT, if you just want to have fun, I've posted my mustaches on TPT as a freebie for you HERE.
Have fun playing/creating all sorts of activities with these!
