This book was about a boy who went throughout his day only seeing odd number things.
This book was a good example of fantasy because it has a real aspect to it but then the situations in the book are unrealistic such as the dog having five legs all of a sudden. I think that this book would be good to read in your class especially if you wanted them to start understanding odd numbers. ( )

This humorous book is a story about a young boy who awakens to find that everything around him is odd. This book also incorporates the use of math and numbers into the story. I could use this book to talk about rhyming and have students point out similar patterns of rhyming in the reading. I could also use this book when talking about how to use humor in your writing while making it appropriate. ( )

I love this book, its a very odd book about a very odd day. This children's picture book is about a boy who wakes up to a very odd morning; where everything is odd. From his alarm clock which only shows odd numbers to his dog who has three legs in front, and if that wasn't odd enough the day continues to present more odd numbers and items for him to navigate his school day through. This is a very cute book that really illustrates what odd numbers are really all about. This book can enhance classroom instruction in many ways. This book could be used throughout the curriculum from math, reading and writing. This book has all your basis covered and students will love the funny, yet odd things that happen throughout the boys day. I highly recommend this book. ( )

This modern fantasy book was about a boy who woke up in an odd world. Everything was odd in his world, his shirt sleeves, his dogs five legs, everything at school. He has a whole odd day and then woke up the next day and everything was overly even. ( )

In One Odd Day, the main character wakes up to see that everything is odd! His clock only shows odd numbers, and he can only find one shoe and one sock. The story goes on and the day gets more odd. A dog with five legs, and a teacher with 9 arms. When he goes back to school, he learns about even numbers, and the next day everything is only in even numbers. His mom even has two heads! I would use this in my class to teach my students about even and odd numbers, they could draw things that had odd numbers connected to them some how, or make things that usually have even numbers have odd numbers. Genre: fantasy ( )
