It’s the end of September and you’re on a roll. Your readers’ and writers’ workshops are up and running and you’re looking to have some fun and introduce your students to some figurative language. Look no further than Josh Funk’s Lady Pancake & Sir French Toast. Not only is every food character personified, but it also includes a literal twist on the idiom, “a fork in the road.” If you’re not ready to introduce figurative language yet, offer it as a book buddy choice. The older students will love sharing this entertaining yet important message about friendship with their younger buddies. Dig in!
