Tell the truth and you might get some milk and cookies. ( )
  Sullywriter | May 22, 2015 |
Miss Finn's empty boxes become the means by which a boy and his dog make a train, car, jet and a big mess. Miss Finn comes out to find the big mess and the boy said that it was caused by a big wind - it was his big fib. But in the end the truth prevails and everyone is friends. The illustrations in this early reader are energetic with great details. This is a fun, adventurous book for all young readers.

This is a wonderful book for young readers who are learning to read independently. There is a great plot with wonderful action with a bit of a lesson, thrown in for fun. I enjoyed reading this book and recalling how I used to have fun playing with the leftover cardboard boxes, and I think most young readers would have a story or two of their own to share on this subject as well. This would be a great book for a small group of students to read independently and then share their own stories about what they made out of boxes (or blankets) when they were playing. ( )
