We Are in a Book!

A California Young Reader Medal Nominee Book For 2012 - 2013
We Are in a Book! By Mo Willems

THIS BOOK IS SO MUCH FUN TO READ TO A GROUP OF KIDS! 
THEY LAUGH, GIGGLE, AND REALLY ENJOY THE HUMOR.

Piggie discovers that she and Gerald are in a book. Piggie can make the reader say a funny word if the reader reads out loud.  It works!  Gerald and Piggie laugh hysterically.  Then Gerald discovers the book is going to end soon - eek!  The book concludes with a very clever ending.

Extending the Reading Experience:
Follow-up activity.
Please click below to link to the FREE blackline master.  Make enough copies for your students.  Have the students draw a picture of themselves in the space provided.  Next, they can write something that they think is funny.  It can be words or sentences.  Then the students can go around the room and read each other's writing out loud!  This is wonderful reading practice.

Take Care,
Kathy
