The grass isn’t always greener on the other side.
Tuck Everlasting - Natalie Babbitt

Once again, a great book that I clearly remember reading in the fourth grade as a class and I was completely engulfed in each chapter trying to figure out what was going to happen next. This is a great read for any teacher looking for that book of an adventure to really keep students engaged in what is happening in the story. All you need to know is there is magic, adventure, and a lesson in what looks great on the surface, isn’t always that great. This would be a great novel to use during guided reading as well. Also to teach a lesson on the story elements of setting, problem, solution, theme, etc.

Tuck Everlasting
Tuck Everlasting - Natalie Babbitt

Tuck Everlasting is a story about a family, The Tucks, that have a very special secret. The main characters, Winnie Foster and Jesse Tuck meet one another and Winnie is taken by the Tucks family. Winnie is told the secret, the Tucks will live forever, and is sworn to secrecy. The book goes back and forth with Winnie having to make the decision whether to drink from the same place to become immortal or to live her life normally. 

This is a great book for students to write about their opinions and their feelings throughout the story. Students can make predictions about what they think will happen and then find out if they are right or wrong. This is a great story to use for writing prompts that is an interesting read to all ages.

Tuck Everlasting
Tuck Everlasting - Natalie Babbitt

Time drags by for Winnie Foster, an eleven-year-old girl who lives in a house bordering the woods owned by her family. Winnie spends her summer days under the watchful eye of her grandmother. Most of the time it's too hot to be out in the sun, and when Winnie does actually venture outside, she never goes beyond the fence of the yard. This book is about a young girl who gets kidnapped and then adopted into a family. This book could be used in a classroom to discuss changes and new experiences. Students can write a journal entry on how the felt during this new experience and how it affected their lives.

Tuck Everlasting is a chapter book that explores the concepts of immortality, life, and death. These are pretty advanced concepts, so I would save this book for an upper grade. I may even let my advanced readers read this independently, or as a literature circle book. According to Fountas and Pinnell, this book would be leveled as a V Level book. This is because it require critical thinking and harsh themes.

Cute fable style book
Tuck Everlasting - Natalie Babbitt

I would fail at the lesson this book is trying to impart, but it was a charming story.

 

I think the part I loved most was the way it was written, with the heat descriptions, and the little asides that made the setting.
