I like using these books in therapy to build up vocabulary and work on sequencing skills.
I always pair the book with a simple follow up craft related to the story. For this book we made chicks which focused on following directions, requesting items, and learning basic concepts.

Bunny Mix is one of my absolute favorites. Sweet and Crunchy is a perfect combo! Cooking is a fun way to work on following directions, sequencing, building up vocabulary, and turn taking with peers. The recipe includes both a visual and written recipe depending on your student skill level.
After you finish making the Bunny Mix you can have your students complete either the visual or written questions related to the recipe. You can also have your students work on sequencing skills by putting the first three ingredients in the Bunny Mix in the correct order.
Check out how we made this recipe last year – Bunny Mix! I have some students who have already been asking if we can make it again this year!!!!
After we finished reading this book we made Easter Eggs out of shaving cream, glue, and food coloring.
