When I read this book to my students, I will focus on Lefebvre's use of word choice and voice.
Above are several pages from the book that show good examples of these two traits. Big and bold words are used throughout the story. As new solutions are used to help Matty out of his sticky situation, come back lines are used over and over again with a new first line added each time. Lefebvre also uses "dot, dot, dot" (as my students like to say) to build suspense in the story. Students will love this book! Not only will they learn something by listening to it, they will enjoy the story and illustrations as well!
