One word, many emotions

dudeTry to imagine that you want to tell a story using just one word.  There are highs.  There are lows.  There is excitement and fear and joy.  Then imagine that word is “dude.”

This one is great for talking with kids about expression and what a difference the sound of a word makes when you read it and hear it, and is also a nice way to talk about the importance of punctuation.

Note the “word by Aaron Reynolds” at the top of the cover.  The revision process must have been awful for him.  Almost wordless.  Pretty wonderful.

Dude!  by Aaron Reynolds and Dan Santat
