Show and Tell by Robert Munsch

Show and Tell (Classic Munsch)Anna loved Show and Tell, written by Robert Munsch and illustrated by Michael Martchenko.  Benjamin decides to take his new baby sister to school for show and tell, but he doesn't tell his mother about it.  The baby is not too happy and gets less and less happy until she's finally back in her mother's arms.  The story is hilarious.  Told in typical Robert Munsch style with repeated phrases that make it fun to read and easy for children to join in the fun.  Anna loved to help with with the Waahhhhs! of the baby.

Robert Munsch's website is excellent!  On his website  there is a page devoted to Show and Tell where you can read about the inspiration for the story and you can also listen to Robert Munsch tell the story.  It was here that I learned that the first inspiration for this story came while Robert Munsch was visiting students at a school in Gander Newfoundland!  


  1. I am definitely going to check this out! I LOVE Robert Munsch and I bet I can find a couple kids here who would love to listen to him read this.

  2. You can hear him read lots of his books on his site. It's great!
