Bibliographic Information: Perkins, Al, and Roy McKie. The Nose Book. New York: Random House, 1970. Print.
Brief Annotation: This story is all about noses and the shapes they come in, the colors, the uses they provide us, etc.
Grade Level: K
Readers who will like this: Students who enjoy rhyming books that include some comedic relief.
Rating/Response: 3 This book was fun to read and I am sure students would get a kick out of reading it, but it was an easy book to read it included some gender bias at times that would need to be clarified in the classroom.
One question you would ask before a read aloud: Does everyone here have a nose? Do all of our noses look different?
Reading Strategy: Free Choice (Picture) but it could also be used to show that we may all be different but we have very similar features and it could also be used to introduce some of the body parts we talk about in Science.
Rationale for Strategy: Although this book could be used for other subject areas, I chose it as a free choice because it was just a fun book and there are probably better books out there to introduce other topics.
