Book Recommendation: AIRMAIL TO THE MOON

Another feature of THE MEDIAN SIB is book recommendations. I read lots of children's literature, and I read lots of professional literature - especially on reading, for teachers. I will share some books that I feel are particularly noteworthy. Some of the best books ever written are children's books. AIRMAIL TO THE MOON by Tom Birdseye is one of my favorites.
It offers humor that children and parents will appreciate, and it offers great examples of figurative language that teachers will love. I have frequently used this book for mini-lessons on figurative language with all grades.

Our reading theme for the week: Figurative Language. I'll check for this book in our library.
