The Great Mizzariddle is one of the best Christmas Storybooks I've ever read! Mr. McElroy's word combinations are ingenious and brilliant. Or should I say ingeniant? A fun book the whole family can enjoy!
I think this is an excellent book for children of all ages. It is definately one of those "read aloud to your kids" books, but still very enjoyable. I can't wait until i get my own copy!
This book is a treat to read, both for parents of younger children and for kids themselves. Its playful use of words should encourage readers to invent their own blended new words and to gain an appreciation of reading for the sound of the words themselves. The story is clever and the illustrations are crisp and colorful. It is, quite simply, a book that is fun to read. Highly recommended for Christmas giving and for year-round enjoying.
The playful and original word combinations in this story make it the perfect supplement for the 6 Traits of Writing. I put it up there with Double Trouble in Walla Walla as a must-have title for Word Choice. Students pre-k through high school (which is what I teach) will enjoy the unique flavor of this fun book!
No teacher should be without this book! The playful and original word combinations make it the perfect supplement for the "Six Traits of Writing."
