Book Review: Another great book in the Wimpy Series. My students loved this book and so did I. It does have a few jokes that I think were above my sixth graders heads. I had explain a few things, but when I did they couldn't stop laughing. My favorite character in this book was Chirag. They play a mean, but funny, trick on him and my kids said they were going to do that to me and I told them I would give them a lunch d-hall. It was pretty funny. Overall, I would recommend this to any parent who has a struggling reader at home. Love the whole series!
Teachable Moments: I actually just finished reading this book aloud to my ESL students. I like this series because it shows point of view and it is an easy read. The pictures enhance the storyline and my kids love them too. I never had to correct any of my students while I was reading. They were so into the book that no one even asked to go to the bathroom. It was a fun experience and I loved seeing them get excited while the books were being passed out. Great for your classroom read-aloud!!
