Chocolate Lily Book Awards: Penelope and the Preposterous Birthday Party

Today the primary classes read Penelope and the Preposterous Birthday Party. The students appreciated the  humour of the situation and compared the story and the illustrations to "Robert Munsch" books. The students made connections to their own personal experiences (text-to-self) with parties and having large groups of friends over to their homes. Some students also made text-to-text connections and thought this story had similarities to Moira's Birthday by Robert Munsch.

The students recorded their reviews on a chart in the library:
I think this one will be another favourite!
