I liked this little book, More Spaghetti, I Say by Rita Golden Gelman. I enjoyed how this book circles back around at the end. The book begins with the female monkey unable to play with the male monkey because she is obsessed with spaghetti. Throughout the book she explains why she loves spaghetti and can’t play. At the end of the story she is finally ready to play but it is now the male monkey who can’t play because she got him hooked on spaghetti. I also enjoyed the rhythm in this poetry book. It seemed to give you parts of the story in chunks and its rhythm made you want to keep going. The repeating part “I love it. I love it. I love it. I do.” was almost like the chorus of a song and made you want to finish the melody. This books theme was entertainment. It has easy vocabulary and sentence structure to allow for enjoyment of the story and illustrations. ( )

This is about a girl who loves spaghetti so much she keeps wanting more. Appropriate for grades K-3.

More Spaghetti, I Say! is about Freddy who wants to play with Minnie the monkey but all Minnie wants to do is eat spaghetti.

I liked this book because it is fun to read and my students would probably enjoy reading it in the classroom library.

The ages/grade levels I would use this for would be 4-8/kindergarten-3rd grade.

This book is about this monkey named Minnie and she loves spaghetti that she does not really want to play or do anything else with Freddy. Freddy the monkey does not really understand why spaghetti is so good that makes Minnie do not want to play until one incident.
This book is an easy read for students.
I also believe that a lot of children like spaghetti as well.
This is a good read for 1st and 2nd grade. ( )

This is a fun book to incorporate when teaching about rhyming. It is also a great book when teaching about manners to lower Elementary students.
