This is a funny book about a sark going to the dentist. It is a a good book for children who are afraid of the dentist. It helps students rationalize the idea of the dentist. ( )

This book is quite funny! Each page contains a one line warning of something you should never do with certain animals. It would be a great book to use in the classroom for students to make predictions based off their knowledge of each animal. It's also a good read to use as a writing prompt. It would be fun for student to come up with their own page to add to the book.

It would work well in a 1st-3rd grade classroom.

This is a book of one line warnings that is intended to be funny. I enjoyed it immensely. It takes only a minute or so to read, but take your time with the illustrations and really soak them in. It's a good book. ( )

A fun book with some wise advice, I also enjoyed the illustrations.

Fun picture book written by the same author as Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. This book would be a good one to read with younger children. I could see my kindergartener and 1st grade students getting a kick out of the illustrations and their humor. ( )
