Shhh! You've just entered the Becker's Book Corner. A quiet peaceful place. A place where you can come anytime you want to curl up and read about wonderful books for young children.
Ahhh! A place to get excited about books, ideas, and connections. Think about how this book might spark some interesting discussion or relate to a topic of study or thematic unit
Hmmm! A place to wonder. Will my students relate to the characters in this book? Will they relate to the storyline? Is there something new and wonderful to share with them? What activities can I do to build on the story?

This truly delightful story uses large double-page spreads to share the experiences of Ruby and Benji on a typical day in school. I applaud the publisher who recognized that these pictures needed to be big and expansive and created an 11” x 11” book size. Young children will be able to easily follow the story line through the expressive faces and recognizable body postures of the main characters. The events from beginning to end would probably have occurred over a 6 minute time span but here we get to watch the play experience unfold step by step.
