This was a wonderful book to teach word choice. The author used lots of neat words for "said" and "went." I read a few pages to my 5th & 6th graders, then had them do a gallery walk (construction paper posters) of boring words. For about 5 minutes I had them write interesting options to the boring words on the paper. After that I finished the book. Every time I would read a word for one of the options they had, the kids would point it out; such as "Murmured! That's a word for said." One of those lessons that went better than expected.

Verdi is probably my favorite picture book. I plan to use it to introduce expository writing. I love the way Janell Cannon has the snake notes at the end to show how the story is grounded in factual information. I'm thinking my students can do research, write an expository piece, then transition to their own fiction story like Cannon. Your other tidbits from this book will be helpful too. Thanks
