Classic Post: Using Mrs. Wishy-Washy to Teach Character and Setting

This classic post was originally published in September 2013. If you like what you see here, check out Elizabeth's other posts!

Elizabeth Hall, the author of some of our guest blog posts, brought our attention to a video she made a couple of years ago with the original Mrs. Wishy-Washy book, showing how you can use Mrs. Wishy-Washy books to teach character and setting.

The original Mrs. Wishy-Washy has been a favorite since 1980,  and our Joy Cowley Collection features six newer stories with Mrs. Wishy-Washy that are perfect for this type of exercise.
