Product Description
The Toughest Cowboy by John Frank is the story of Grizz Brickbottom and his cowboy buddies. Grizz feels there is something missing from his life, so he decides to get a dog. What will his cowboy buddies think of his new pet? The story is hilarious and filled unique descriptions and figurative language. It can even be considered a type of tall tale due to all the hyperbole.

I love using picture books with my middle schoolers, and this is one I use to introduce and reinforce hyperbole, similes, and puns. There is even a little foreshadowing and irony present as well.

Included in this packet:

- Discussion Questions (30+)
- Tic-Tac-Toe Question Board (Differentiated)
- Figurative Language Multiple Choice
- Hyperbole Practice
- Cause and Effect
- Plot Elements

These questions and activities are geared toward using The Toughest Cowboy with upper elementary/middle school students, but can be adapted to use with younger students as well.

I will be making more picture book study guides aimed at older readers in the near future.
