I mustache you to read this book!

        Over the summer I blogged about one of the SSYRA (Sunshine State Young Readers Award) books, Fake Mustache by Tom Angleberger.  I mentioned that it was funny and cute and a must read.  This might possibly have been a bit of an understatement. 

       I began the school year with this as our first read aloud and it was a HUGE success!  Let me tell you a little bit about my kiddos.  Two thirds of my class is boys.  Not to sound stereotypical or anything but must boys like to eat.  My class was so into this book that they said they didn't want to go to lunch they just wanted me to keep reading.  Can you believe it?  I hardly could. 

        Therefore, I will once again recommend Fake Mustache by Tom Angleberger.  Try it, you might like it . . . and I'm 99.99% sure that your students will too!!!


  1. I'm reading The Year of the Book, and when I finish I'm going to read this one!

    Math is Elementary

  2. I really enjoyed The Year of the Book also! It's on my list of books to share with my class this year. Next up is The One and Only Ivan.
