A Quiet Book Pubbed in 2010

Fact or Fiction?
This week's READ-4-LUCK pick is Rain School written and illustrated by James Rumford.
The children arrive on the first day of school and build a mud structure, which will be their classroom for the next nine months.
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin
Year: 2010
Word Count: 451
Book Level: 2.5

CHILDREN:  Would be a fun one to read while it's raining outside. 

PARENTS:  Very interesting. A quick read for bedtime.

TEACHERS:  It gave me the idea to read this on the first day of school. It could introduce a community building activity or game.

WRITERS:  The simple language contributes to the tone of the book. Would be beneficial to "copy" and type into a Word document for study. 

WRITE-4-LUCK: Try writing a story about a time when you created something that you knew wouldn't last.

Keep on keepin' on...

  1. I agree with your rating of this book. I enjoyed it, but I don't know that my kids would ask for it again and again. Certianly a good resource in the classroom though!
