4 out of 5 stars


I can personally attest that this makes a great read-aloud for children in grades 1 and 2! It provided the opportunity to discuss what a “memoir” is, to make predictions, and to enjoy a cute story in diary format. We also discussed nocturnal animals. After reading this book, all of the children, and myself, want to read the first book, Memoir of a Goldfish.
