We will be reading 8 Class Pets + 1 Squirrel ÷ by 1 Dog = Chaos by Vivian Vande Velde. This book is a 2016 Monarch Award nominee (Illinois Reader’s Choice Awards). We will talk about how we will be participating in these awards in a few weeks.
Here’s what it’s about:
When Twitch the squirrel is chased into a school by the principal’s dog, the class pets work together to rescue him. In this hilarious chapter book, a group of small animals turn an elementary school into a real zoo.
Students have the option to find the book at the public library or purchase it on their own. Parents can also send money through school and Mrs. Susina will place the order and the book will be delivered to school.
