Books I Love – The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

on June 4, 2012

This journey is about to begin! Get your kleenex ready for this heart wrenching story that chronicles a little porcelain rabbit’s journey to learn how to love. Kate DiCamillo’s story will grab you and your students, leaving them begging every day for more. This is an awesome story for teaching character development over the course of a story, sequencing, suspense and many more literary elements. It also just works wonderfully as a read-aloud.
