We read Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I don’t) by Barbara Bottner, illustrated by Michael Emberley, a story about a girl who has difficulty finding a book she likes.
She finally finds a book, which is about warts – Shrek. Our high school is putting on Shrek the Musical, so this was perfect for promoting students to go to see the production as well as an opportunity to encourage students to continue to look for books that they enjoy, using the skills we have talked about.
