So I just picked this up from the library and am debating.
Frankenstein by Rick Walton
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
WAS going to use it with a lesson on characters for second grade. And don't get me wrong ... I love the book. Funny, funny, funny. AWESOME illustrations.
But ... I don't know. All the losing of heads, literally. Is that something I want to be doing in the library?
Of course I do NOT want to become one of the fussy ... fussybudgets.
So I may go back to the teachers and say "after seeing this book I'm not sure I want to make it the basis of our lesson anymore." I sent them a list of suggestions and that was what they picked.
Or I might not.
Or maybe I'll work harder to get them to want Morris Lessmore. That would work well for characters, right? For second grade? Talking about Morris and his love of books and life of service. ;]
