Personal Response and Rating: (1-4): 4. I love how book keeps you guessing on where the characters are going. Also the illustrations are incredible and they show diversity in a city which you don’t see that often.

Text- Dependent Question: What is the last stop on Market Street?

Reading Strategy:

  1. Tompkin- K-W-L Charts
  2. Students recall what they know, want to learn and what they learned from the story.
  3. This strategy is appropriate for this book because this story you have to recall what is going on from one scene to the next. If students were to write a list of what the characters are doing on their journey it will be easier for students to recall.
