Today it was time to start a new chapter book. Instead of me choosing the book, I gave the children the choice of 4 books. I read the first couple pages for each book:
- Fantastic Mr. Fox by Roald Dahl
- The Mouse and the Motorcycle by Beverly Cleary
- Abel's Island by William Steig
- Mr. Popper's Penguins by Richard and Florence Atwater
The winner with 5 votes was Mr. Popper's Penguins.
I mentioned to the class, if the book they voted for was not chosen, they might want to get it out of the library to read with their family.
