My kids are absolutely loving" The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane".

I wasnt sure it would be a hit-I mean I have some rough boys and its a book about a sentient china rabbit. Well, they love it and keep begging for me to read another chapter.

Thanks for the recommendation!

Whoever suggested Edward Tulane to you was spot on with the rec. Years ago, I read it to my 2nd grade class, and they were spellbound every time, hardly able to wait for the next day and the next chapter. When I read the last sentence of the book, the entire class burst out in spontaneous applause. That’s one of my best teaching memories.

ETA: eagles23 hadn’t yet responded when I started typing, and yet we said exactly the same thing about the applause. There is something magical about that book, a true hero’s journey.

I know I did, but I think I was one of many.

There is something about this book that touches the hearts of second grade boys. Every year I read it, and every year the most challenging boys welled up.

I remember once, one of them suddenly interrupted and said ď wait...she died?.Ē And then the tears came.

This book never failed to produce some deep thoughtful book talks.

Kate di Camillo is the best!
One year after reading the part when the little sister dies, one of my third grade boys asked to call his mom. The class loved that book!

I read it every year to my 5th graders. I can't read the chapter with Sara Ruth in it without crying....like ugly crying and every year one at least one rough and tough boy cries along with me! I love this book!

I know so many people who love this book, but I just don't get it. I found it horribly sad and opted my (at the time) first grader out of the school wide read. - I was fighting an uphill battle to convince him that reading is "fun". Making him cry did not fit that agenda.

What am I missing that makes everyone love this book so much?

Lakeside, I would not read this book to first graders. Totally not appropriate for that age grouo. The vocabulary is too high for them to understand. It's a challenging read for 4th grade. We have to do a lot of vocab work to access and fully understand.

That said it is my favorite book of all time. For me it is Edward's internal journey to become a better 'person', his spiritual journey that strikes a chord.

I may need to reread this book. When I read it the first time, it didnít connect with me. I know people love it.... but I just didnít feel the same way.
