PPBF: Would You Rather…

WouldYouRatherCoverAuthor/Illustrator: John Burningham
Publisher: SeaStar Books, 1978 (Originally published in the UK by Random House, 1978)
Ages: 3-6
Themes: bedtime, decision-making, humorous stories
Opening: Would you rather…

WouldYouRatherTitleSummary: (from my library catalog)A series of comical choices such as, “Would you rather eat spider stew or slug dumplings or mashed worms?” ends with an invitation to bedtime.

WouldYouRather2I like this book because: What fun! The notion of asking the reader to choose between a variety of increasingly silly options to simple questions is genius! A dare any child not to enjoy this! The playful loose drawings are a perfect compliment.

WouldYouRather3Resources/activities: Make up your own set of questions and options to choose from, according to themes, books or units a class might be covering.
