Have you ever noticed that some dogs look like their owners?
The mere suggestion of this possibility opened the floodgates for us here at All About Learning Press.
While pondering the question, I jokingly asked, “If dogs look like their owners, could it also be true that book characters resemble their creators?”
Well, one day my staff decided to put the theory to the test. I wasn’t quite sure what to think about it, but they used a Venn diagram to compare me with Warren Pig, the main character in one of the decodable stories from All About Reading Level 4. (If you haven’t met Warren yet, you can read about him in “Pigs in the Kitchen”.)
So…what’s the verdict? How much do Warren and I have in common? Here’s what my staff discovered:
Well, Warren and I certainly do have some interesting things in common, but we have some big differences too!
Does your child have anything in common with Warren Pig? Will you help satisfy my curiosity? Here’s what you can do:
After downloading and completing your own Venn diagram, please share your findings with us! What do you or your child have in common with Warren? How are you different?
I’d love to hear about what you have in common with Warren. Please let me know in the comments below!
