Narwhal is fun, spunky, and full of imagination! Join Narwhal and Jelly as they explore their friendship, make new friends, and play pretend!
Librarian Gina introduces the book:
Make your own paper jellyfish
Use re-purposed materials to make your own jellyfish. Look for paper or cardboard to cut out the body of the jellyfish. Then, glue or tape the jellyfish tendrils onto the bottom of the body. Use ribbon or string or torn up paper. Add eyes and a face!
Watch librarian Gina create this craft:
Discover fun facts about narwhals or your favorite animals
Create your own graphic novel
Use your imagination and write or illustrate your own story or graphic novel. Who will be your characters? How will you draw them and what do they say? Here’s a good place to start.
Practice dramatic reading
It can be fun to read graphic novels aloud, either alone or with others. Try reading a page of your favorite graphic novel out loud. What kind of voice does your character have? Can you get clues about how to say your lines from the dialog (the conversation)?
Knock, knock. Who’s there?
Sing a silly song
Do you like to make up songs like Narwhal? Make your voice go high and low, or soft and loud, as you clap a rhythm with your hands. Try making up a song while you are doing something, like a cleaning song while you clean your room.
