The Bippolo Seed and other lost stories

Bibliographic Information: Seuss, Dr. The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories. 2011. Print.

Brief Annotation: This is a collection of short Dr. Seuss stories.

Genre: Fiction/Poetry

Grade Level: k-6

Readers who will like this: Children who like stories that rhyme, children who enjoy Dr. Seuss, or children who enjoy stories that teach important messages.

Rating/Response: 4 This is a fantastic way to reach all of greatness of Dr. Seuss, but it is much shorter and quicker to read for a mini lesson.

One question you would ask before a read aloud: I would probably use this to teach one of they ehyming phonics strategies so I would ask a question related to what I wanted to teach.  If I was just reading it for fun, I would ask them a different question depending on the story.  For example, if I was reading The Bippolo Seed, I would ask the students if they have ever been so greedy that something bad happened.

Reading Strategy: Free Choice

Rationale for Strategy: This is a book that I believe that all teachers should have on their shelves.  It is so much shorter than many Dr. Seuss, but it is just as phenomenal.  It is a great text to teach a mini-lesson when you need rhyming words.
