I Am the BookI Am the Book by Lee Bennett Hopkins

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I think my favorite might have been A Poem Is by Jane Yolen. Or maybe Who's Rich by Naomi Shihab Nye. Or This Book by Avis Harley.

It's hard to decide.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So and so "did not get the message."

"All the peace and quiet? It was gone."

Both made me laugh as I have been accused of being inflexible when I get frustrated when my library assistant is constantly pulled at unexpected times. Lighten up they say. Never mind that it doesn't just affect the one class it affects all the other classes after it that day.

See. I guess I haven't learned my lesson. ;] But Mr. Duck did.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh, so clever. Practice with the pirate voice is a must for this read aloud.

Only one thing. I think it might have made more sense for this to be a little older book. Like maybe a second or third grade "Guide."

Not sure first day first graders would get the vocabulary.

That said, still loved it. Especially (slight spoiler ahead) the ending. That IS where treasure lies.
