Patricia Polacco is one of my favorite children's authors. I read Some Birthday to my first graders, and we all enjoyed it! She engages the children on seveal levels. At first the children all believe that her dad has forgotten her birthday, and then has the idea to go to the clay pit and get a picture of the monster who allegedly lives there. No one is let down! I have recommended this book to coworkers as a great read aloud.
Hi, my name is Skyler and I think you should read ¿Some Birthday¿ by Patricia Polacco. They go to the clay pit for Patricia¿s birthday. Patricia says that it¿s the scariest place on Earth! Her brothers say it¿s true. Her dad, brothers, and she head to the clay pit. On then way, her dad reminds them about the monster at the clay pit. Well, I hope you like this book! Reviewed by: Skyler
