I added these to their SSR book baskets to give them another kind of print to look at and they went crazy!! They had so much fun looking at them, and you should have seen the creative ways in which they folded them back up! 🙂

I got them for free from Teacher’s Treasures along with some of those AAA travel guides for various areas of the country–just another way to look at print and notice our environment! 🙂
