Cooking with the Grinch (Dr. Seuss) - Ti... Cooking with the Grinch (Dr. Seuss) - Tish Rabe,Tom Brannon
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. 

With the newest Grinch movie out and working with two little Grinch fans, when I see a Grinch book at the library, I snatch it up. I will say I have been rather disappointed with the most recent onslaught of Grinch books based on the new movie. I haven't seen the movie yet, but the books were rather dull. I grabbed this from the library, figuring it would be okay and the kids at work would enjoy looking at the pictures.

Then I finally read it. It is actually very good. For starters, I really admire Grinch books that actually rhyme. As soon as I open one to find that doesn't rhyme, my heart goes out of reading it just a little bit. What's the point of a Grinch book that doesn't rhyme? That's just my personal preference. I'm a bit biased toward the original. Continuing on. 

The story itself is also very cute. It's not just a rehash of how the Grinch tried stealing Christmas. This is a story that occurs after all that and it is amazing in its simplicity. 

Also, the pictures are adorable. They are just Grinchy enough for me. They have the same style as the original Grinch, but are still new and different.

This is a Step 1 book for preschool to kindergarten readers. It uses rhyme, big text, simple words, and picture clues to help young readers.

Excellent story with great pictures. I really loved this one. It definitely made my shrunken heart grow at least one size today.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas! - Dr. Seuss,Walter Matthau

Another one of my top five books that I love to read. The Grinch as we all know is bad or is he. This book is a great read for all grades as whole class or as small group read. The students can read about How the Grinch stole Christmas and how he gave it back to them.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas Review
How the Grinch Stole Christmas! - Dr. Seuss

How the Grinch Stole Christmas is a holiday classic. I think using this book in the classroom around Christmas time would be exciting for children. I would use this book as a fun book to read for the holidays and maybe even do a fun Christmas activity with it. (Book Reading level: Lexile 590 L)

The Grinch Who Stole My Heart
How the Grinch Stole Christmas! - Dr. Seuss

This book is a classic. It is a must read during the holiday season. It is a  story about how everyone has love in their heart. Some people just need to be loved to uncover it. This book can be used in the classroom around the holidays as a fun story to read as a whole group and then do activities as a class based on the book, such as making an ornament. This book is on a DRA level of 38 and can be read with students from kindergarten to second grade. I personally, think that this book is a book for all elementary ages.

How the Grinch Stole Christmas! - Dr. Seuss,Walter Matthau


Book themes for Festivus: Read anything comedic; a parody, satire, etc. Books with hilariously dysfunctional families (must be funny dysfunctional, not tragic dysfunctional). Anything that makes you laugh (or hope it does).


On Christmas, can there possibly a better choice?
