It’s Monday and I’m happy to be participating in a weekly event with a community of bloggers who post reviews of books that they have read the previous week. Check out more IMWAYR posts here: Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers
Despite my heartbreak at the fact that I will not be sharing these books with my students tomorrow, or the next day, or the next day after that due to the ongoing teacher’s strike in B.C., I am happy to share them with you in the hopes that you are not on strike and can share them with YOUR students!
Kids Can Press is a prominent Canadian publishing company. I am fortunate to be on their list of people who receives samples of some of their new releases twice a year. Last week, their fall books arrived at my doorstep! Book joy! I’m happy to be featuring some of these books in my IMWAYR post today.
Stop, Theif! by Heather Takavec
I instantly fell in love with the main character in this book – an adorable little dog named Max. Max lives on a farm and one day the farmer asks Max to help him catch a thief who has been stealing carrots, lettuce, beans and cherries from the farm. Max is eager to help and begins asking all the farm animals if they know who the unidentified thief is. The humor, of course, is that all the animals Max asks tell him they know nothing about a thief, while they are eating carrots, beans and lettuce! This is definitely a fun book that will have young children laughing. A great addition to books about farm animals, as well as for practicing simple inferring. Charming illustrations!
