Roger is known for being tardy, and he is used to getting into trouble because of it. But, even though he wants to behave and be on time, he can't seem to take his eyes off of the amazing things happening all around him. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the wondrous world with Roger!
1. The story is really cute. In this story a little boy who is different teaches everyone around him the meaning of not doing things the same way. I think that the moral of the story is very important. Too often younger children are taught to conform in every way.
2. I use this story to teach students how to come up with creative ways of saying words. In the story the boy says the word "fabulous" for everything in the beginning. However, by the end he has come up with some many more adjectives to describe things. This becomes a great lesson for my students who use the same words. By using different adjectives that are modeled in this story, they are able to come up with more fabulous words.
3. The illustrations are beautiful. I love looking at all of the detail in this book.
Whether you are a classroom teacher, parent or just lover of children's literature....get this book! It is fabulous.
