robotdreamsI love this book. It’s very sad, but it’s also thoughtful, delightful, and real (even if it is about a dog and a robot). The kids love it.

Last year I did a unit on wordless books with 1st grade. This year in 2nd grade I wanted something quick to take us from all the library orientation we did in November into our next project in January (starting The Tale of Despereaux). This book was perfect for December. It takes about 1.5 library classes to read, and the kids were fully absorbed. It sparked an interest in other wordless books with some students.

Now we’ve finished with this story and they’ll have free time for Game Day this week and movies next week for the 2 classes I see before Christmas break.
