Eaddy, Susan Poppy’s Best Paper, illustrated by Rosalinde Bonnet. PICTURE BOOK. Charlesbridge, 2015. $16.
Poppy’s dream is to become a writer. When her teacher gives her writing assignments, she is sure that she will be better than in the class - including her best friend Lavender. Poppy is easily distracted, though and when Lavender receives the praise that Poppy feels she deserves, Poppy doesn’t behave very well.
I can’t wait to share this with my Language Arts teachers, because this is a perfect book to talk about all of the things we do to avoid homework assignments. If it only went a little bit more into the revision process, it would be perfection!
