    Great Lesson!

    'Dirt Boy' has been a family favorite for the last few years. I recently used 'Dirt Boy' to do a DRTA lesson plan (I am becomming a teacher!) and my student and his class loved the book. I donated it to the class as a thank you gift for allowing me to work in the classroom and they loved it.

    wonderful story

    My 5 year old son and 3 year old daughter loved this book, especially the illustrations! Great bath motivator too. We borrowed it from the library and cannot wait to buy it.

    My Boys loved this one

    This hansel & gretal type story with a twist is hillarious! My sons (ages 3-8) want to read it over and over. It's about a little boy who loves dirt so much he runs away from a bath, meets a giant who loves dirt as much as he does --- even more, and finally learns that being clean is OK, too. I highly reccommend it!
