One Of The Best!,
This review is from: The Gruffalo (Picture Books) (Hardcover)
I read this book to my kindergarten class and they LOVE it! The children act it out, sequence the story through pictures, journal about it and talk about it for months it is one of their favorites and mine too! I love reading it because they get so excited and it is so much fun to read over and over!

My kindergartners love it too - even though English is not their first language! The repetition helped them understand and memorize the story, even though some of the language was hard for them at first. They were very excited to find out that there's a sequel, and couldn't wait to hear it. I downloaded the finger puppets from the Gruffalo website and my ESL kids used them to help me tell the story to the rest of the kindergarten class, and then to their families at home! Their teacher says we will make this an annual event now! I know if we had a copy in the school library it would get checked out a lot!
