    Christmas Rat

    Ann,

    I liked the Christmas Rat because it was so surprising. I certainly didn't expect it to turn out the way it did when I began reading it. I am simply reading it aloud to my 4th graders for the sheer enjoyment. I am anxious to see if they are able to put the clues together and guess that Anje is really an angel.

    Off the top of my head, if I were using it for instruction, I think I'd have my students reread the book and keep track of all the clues Avi gave the reader about Anje/Angela Gabrail being an angel. Next year when my students are 5th graders, I think I'll do an author's study on Avi.

    Happy reading,
    Elaine
