Harry the Gorilla and his best friend, Bradley the Porcupine, were taking their usual Saturday drive to the supermarket. On the way, Harry spotted a sign in the window of Sammy's Sporting Goods Store:
"All Baseball Gloves Half Price."
"Stop the car!" shouted Harry, all excited. "I need a new mitt." "Harry, you already have one," said Bradley. "What you need is to buy some food ... especially your favorite, peanut butter."
"Yeah, yeah, yeah! But first, I want to check out some baseball gloves. Stop the car!" Harry ordered.
On Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, Harry had plenty of peanut butter. Each day he made a thick sandwich of it topped with grape jelly.
Then came Wednesday.
Harry went to the kitchen and opened his refrigerator. Do you know what he found?
Bradley had been right. Harry had run out of peanut butter. The rumbles and growls in the gorilla's stomach got louder
... and louder... and louder!
More than anything, he craved his favorite meal -- a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.Starving and embarrassed, the gorilla tries to borrow the ingredients from his lovable neighbors: Bradley, a preppy porcupine, Matilda, a hard-of-hearing hippo, and Gertrude, who's an absent-minded skunk.Along the way, Harry gets hungrier and hungrier -- and learns some very important life lessons about saving and spending money.As the story continues, young readers will, too! And they'll have fun at the same time.
More Than A Story
As readers share this tale, written and illustrated by educators, children wait to hear the magic words, "peanut butter" and "jelly."
Once they're spoken, the children must immediately do something. It can be as simple as clapping hands five times when they hear "jelly," or acting like Harry the Gorilla for a few seconds, in response to "peanut butter."
Teachers, parents and librarians can use The Peanut Butter And Jelly Game to make learning to listen ...
fun. And children are enthusiastic about this unique way to exercise their bodies and minds.
