Charlie Cook's Favorite Book by Julia Donaldson

Charlie Cook has a favorite book about a pirate, who also has a favorite book about Goldilocks who also has a favorite book about. . .
A fantastic book to get children interested in reading. Each page takes the reader into a new book through the character from the previous book. Each character loves to read! The author easily weaves various genres and different types of characters through the story as Charlie goes on an adventure in reading. Lesson Idea: Put together a group of books that will motivate your students to read. Include this book. Put the group of books in a special place in the classroom library. Highlight the section as "Great Reads" and encourage students to read a book from the group when he needs additional motivation for reading.
