Mommy Go Away!
Petra Mathers illustrated this book with expressive stick figures, which are easy for children to copy.
Choose a figure from the book to trace onto graph paper. Measure and draw an enlarged grid onto butcher paper and re-draw the figure at life-size. Color to match the illustrations.
Math, spatial reasoning, art
