Book review: It’s Only Stanley, 5 out of 5 stars #bookaday

It's Only Stanley book coverby Jon Agee
Picture book
Interest level: K-3
Reading level: 2.8
5 out of 5 stars


This would make an excellent read-aloud! The story is told in rhyme, which makes the narrative fun and will hold childrens’ interest. There’s repetition and also lots of opportunity to have the children make predictions as to what Stanley, the dog, might be up to. Make sure to take note of the cat throughout the story..he makes me laugh. I really like the ending, which is a bit of a surprise and lets kids fill in the blank. Fun and original!
