Rhinos Who Surf



My children have loved this book since it was first read it to them. The illustrations are colorful and bright. The surfer slang makes it a fun read.


I first read the book to the students. I did a directed drawing of the rhino with them using grey oil pastel.

Students colored in their rhinos and added swim trunks, horns, eyes and swirls to the knee caps and elbows. Students drew colorful surfboards under their rhinos. They could add sky and water or use the paint for that. To make the water, students used bottles caps to make circle prints with blue, green and white tempera paint.
