This laugh-out-loud read-aloud book is so much better than the movie! The "oldie-but-goodie" novel is great in the depths of winter, or right before or after summer vacation—anytime, really, that you are ready for chuckle-filled reading.
41 very short chapters have been divided into eleven sections that stop at appropriate times in the novel. Each reading should take about 15 minutes of read-aloud fun. All segments have a one-page, short answer set of questions that involve basic understanding of the text, as well as higher level questioning strategies. The short essays easily relate to younger lives and foster composition comfortably. This set also includes a Final Essay Exam.
