    1. I read Why do I Have to Eat Off the Floor at my placement last week to introduce a writers workshop about questions.

Why can't I have a pet duck or an elephant? The answers are reasonable replies that most parents would tell their children. I read this book to introduce writing and asking questions to t [...]

    3. A great story filled with questions. Students may be inspired to write their own question book about things they don't understand. this story could be a great opener to a writing workshop. For the students to write about differences, questions, or things they've always wondered. many things can be taken from this story.

    4. A very charming story of a dog that laments all the things he is not allowed to do - like dig in the garden or drive a car. His owner gives good examples for all the rules they have, but in the end has to remind the dog that he is a DOG and that's why he has to eat off the floor.Very fun illustrations.

    6. Cute twist on the why? why? why? questions that every child asks in this case, it's the dog doing the asking. Sweet and funny illustrations to accompany the text. Fun for a dog-themed read aloud or display.
