Lentil is set in a fictional town, Alto, Ohio and features a boy who frustrated by his inability to sing or whistle learns to play the harmonica.
So what did we do?
Art: black and white drawings as the pictures in Lentil are in black and white. Miss Belle used charcoal and Mr Exuberance used wax crayon. Both children didn't want to leave their pictures in black and white so painted them.
History: it was fun to go through the pictures and find, on most pages, indications that this isn't a modern book.
Music: we listened to the harmonica and sang She will be coming round the mountain.
There is so much more that we could do. We change book after a week although there would be plenty in Lentil to keep going for another week.
