This book is cute. It is a nice story about an ideal father-child relationship, which some kids could relate to. It's full of simple text for young readers. The book's content is also much more appropriate for younger readers.
I like this because it's a book most people know. I like it for much younger kids. It can help certain common food names to become sight words. Also, for even younger children, it can establish one-to-one correspondence. Also, days of the week is explored.
I loved this. The illustrations add so much more that young readers may miss, but may be explained, or not. The story is poignant and could relate to some kids' heritage. It highlights the importance of strength through love of family.
I thought most kids could relate to this, especially if they have older siblings. I liked how they can see through this story that when they don't share, it hurts others' feelings. I think this also helps older siblings understand how to be nicer to their younger siblings.
I liked this because the words aren't crazy and are decodable. Most kids know what this book is about, but a teacher could still teach about trying new things, and of course, make green eggs and ham with his or her class. The rhyme is easy to hear and repetitive. The sentence structure is repetitive on a couple of pages too.
This book is a nice easy reader that younger elementary school children might like. It deals with parent unemployment, smoking, mild poverty, and appreciation for the things one possesses, all from a child's point of view.
