A Deal's a Deal by Stephanie Blake - ESSENTIAL

Blake, Stephanie. A Deal's a Deal Random House Children's Books, 2011. $15.99. PICTURE BOOK.  Simon brings his cars over to Ferdinand's house and the two friends decide to make a trade: all of Simon's cars for Ferdinand's red one.  Unfortunately, as soon as Simon gets home to play with his new car, it breaks.  Now Simon must figure out what to do.  This was an absolutely delightful book, with great opportunities for young readers to make predictions and practice that reading strategy.  Though an older reader might expect the red car to break quickly, there are other twists that might catch even the most sophisticated reader off guard.  Pre-K, EL(K-3), EL, MS - ESSENTIAL.  Brent Smith, Reading Teacher
