For no other reason, other than the fact that it's hilarious, we read this story today. I picked it up on the recommendation of another teacher last year and I loved reading it again! It's just so funny!
I wouldn't recommend it for kids younger than Second Grade, (there's quite a bit of text) but it's a great way to kick off a conversation about text-to-self connections. I could see it being very useful at the start of the year when teachers are talking about what good readers do.
Everyone can find something to relate to in this book!
