Product Description

It's all here! Everything you need for your readers to respond to this book,

Spookley, the Square Pumpkin, by Joe Troiano. In this story, Spookley is feeling a bit sad, lonely and square; and those other pumpkins are teasing him! But not for long, as you will read to find out what makes being square a unique feature and also helps to solve a big problem. This book entertains the reader and the listeners with rhyme and rhythm. The perfect book to teach and review the different shapes... and also teach awareness of differences; and how we might not want to judge a pumpkin by it's shape.

It's fun fiction! And leads to a very rewarding ending. Read this book aloud and choose these reader response pages as a springboard for important class discussions about being unique and caring about others. Also included is a Spookley craftivity and word cards for your pocket chart.
