Kids enjoy this book and it can be used very sucessfully with low ability readers up to high school age...and it's funny!
This charming and funny book was high interest, high "cool" for students with weak reading skills. Strong visual support for the story and characters enabled successful and enjoyable mini lessons on idioms, writer's craft, vocabulary, predfiction, humor and even social skills. The author's ability to clearly convey emotions through the faces of the characters and the characteristics of the print made it easy for even impaired students to read facial and "verbal" cues. Student success was contagious: students asked for more, one (10th grade) said he couldn't wait to return to read more! There is another in the series and I beleive more to come. As readers begin to know the characters better, I beleive they will have even more fun! I intend to use this with ESL students as well.
