Usually when we post about a featured book we like to pick one good for read-alouds with younger children. This week we wanted to do something different with our featured book post, we decided to pick a book good for your older children (approx. grade 4/5) or advanced readers.
Our book this week is called Frindle by Andrew Clements. It is a children’s novel about a young boy named Nick Allen who invents a word after being given homework involving a report on the history of the dictionary. His word, “frindle” catches on, and a wonderful sequence of events ensues.
Let your young reader give Frindle a try!
