This is an excellent book for a read aloud. It raises important issues boys and girls face in real life that adults need to discuss with them. This book could also be used for guided reading/literature circles.
The main focus skills in this lit log are: determining the central message and explaining how it is conveyed through key details in the text; describing in depth characters and events; distinguishing one's own point of view from that of the narrator or characters; and explaining how the text's illustrations contribute to the story.
