The Itchy Book by LeUyen Pham - ADVISABLE

The Itchy Book by LeUyen Pham. PICTURE BOOK. Hyperion (Disney), 2018. $9. 9781368005647



All the dinosaur friends have itches to be scratched, but there's just one problem: A sign posted nearby declares, "Dinosaurs Do Not Scratch." They're determined to follow the rule, but when when they get a better look at the sign, they realize they were missing out on a very important bit of information.

This cute book is sure to get kids empathizing with the itchy characters, and they will enjoy the surprise ending. It would work well for whole-class use, as the dialogue lends itself well to a read-aloud. I look forward to sharing it with my first-graders next year in a lesson on following directions -- ALL the directions!
