This wonderful tale by Russell Hoban is a perfect fit for Quentin Blake's loose and vibrant ink and watercolors. We've loved reading this one at home with our kids.
This seemed a bit like the result of a writing prompt or workshop challenge - write a story about something found in your trash (popsicle sticks) and a social issue (financial struggles). It makes a bit more sense when you realize it was published posthumously. Perhaps Mr. Hoban would not have chose Leggi tutto
The ice-pop sticks that Rosie collects dream of being more than just a stick in a box. They dream of being a horse! Of course Rosie doesn't know this until one night she wishes her box was "a chest full of treasure to pay bills with" so her family won't worry so much anymore. Amazingly her wish come Leggi tutto
I really enjoyed the sticks, the horse, the tickling the pirates, the ice-cream-stand-transformation, the first-treasure-that-wasn't-the-right-kind-of-treasure...all of the lighthearted fanciful impossible details, but couldn't really enjoy them because they were stuck to the heavy lump of the terri Leggi tutto
Illustrations of the book are great and deserve more stars. Story line is fantasy and fun to read; however, I gave the book 1 star because I could not endorse the part where a treasure chest is stolen and given to the girl's parents to help pay bills. It crossed a personal boundary.
Why shouldn't iceblock sticks dream of being a horse?! We imbue all sorts of things, on a regular basis, with human characteristics. Heavens, Hans Christian Andersen gave us a tin soldier many, many years ago, and I just love The Velveteen Rabbit , And our cars. So I'm okay with iceblock sticks being Leggi tutto
Great book to spark children's own story writing. I used this for a series of lessons with one of my tutees. She created her own story based on this book - but named it 'Lucy's Magic Unicorn'. She loved the autonomy she had to create her own version of the story, but appreciated having some inspirat Leggi tutto
This colorful book was magical and adventurous. I only gave it three stars since the transitions were rough and the ideas were a bit far-fetched, but it was a fun read that I think kids would enjoy. Guided Reading: N/A (estimated J) ATOS: 3.3 Six Traits: Ideas, Presentation
A beautiful and fun magical book about a girl who’s family is struggling. Creative, moral, lovely story to help inspire and guide.
This is a story book about Rosie and her magic horse, which is actually popsicle sticks she had collected over time. This could be a good book for young girl readers ages 6-7. Students would enjoy this story with the great imagination and creativity Rosie and her popsicle sticks have. The sticks are Leggi tutto
