|About the Book|
This is a story about a girl who has a big imagination and tells a story about her day through poetry. There are pictures of different objects within the text that when you read them, you read what they are. This made the story an interesting read.Response:Ive never read a book like this before so it was very different to me. Although it is a childrens book, I found it kind of hard to read. I keep stubbing over words and found myself having to reread what I read to be able to understand what was going on. I think because of the difficulty that this book would be geared for an older age.Concept:I really like the creative imagination of the girl. I definitely think because of that, children will be able to relate to the story and stay interested. I also enjoyed having to decode the story and trying to figure out what the author was trying to say.Classroom Connection:I think this would make a great classroom connection because it will introduce students to a different type of poetry. Like myself, not all students know their are different forms of poetry that can also make it fun. After introducing this story you can have you students create their own story with different objects with hidden messages within the text.CCSS Range:The lexile on this book was N/A. I believe this book would be grade appropriate read-a-loud for k-3. Because of the difficulty in text I think students should be able to independently read by third grade.
