Do you know Lulu?

Tuesday, September 30, 2014
Reading aloud from a chapter book is one of my favorite parts of our school day. Well, actually, reading aloud period is my favorite part of the day.  :) This year's class especially loves our sacred chapter book time of day!

I was looking for a new chapter book to share with my readers and I stumbled upon Lulu and the Brontosaurus (thanks Twitter!) by Judith Viorst and Lane Smith. Judith Viorst has written lots of amazing books including Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day which was recently made into a movie. (Kids loved that fun fact!)
We LOVED it! The kids were laughing out loud and singing along! Yes, there is singing! 

Who is Lulu? She is a little girl and she is a brat. She always gets her way until one day she asks for a pet dinosaur. Craziness ensues. Other cool features about this book~a narrator tells the story and adds her own two cents, the chapters are short and the kids begged for one.more.chapter, there are alternate endings (Hello Wayne's World!!) and the illustrations are amazing! 

If you are looking for a fresh read aloud, check it out! There are 2 more in the series, too! I can't wait to share these with my guy! 

Do you have a favorite chapter book read aloud?
