Creepy Carrots

In this book, Jasper the Rabbit loves to eat carrots from Crackenhopper Field. He stops multiple times a day and helps himself to the juicy carrots. One day, Jasper started to notice some of the carrots were following him!


These Carrots terrorize Jasper until he devises a plan to stop the Creepy Carrots. The fun part is the plan is helpful to both Jasper and the Creepy Carrots.

This story is a class favorite. My students laugh and giggle throughout the story.

After reading this story, we will look at the problem and solution in the story. This story is unique because Jasper has a problem to solve, but so do the Creepy Carrots. The solution that Jasper devises solves both problems!  

Here is an anchor chart we will be using to help guide us.


Definitely check this book out if you haven’t already done so!
