Must Read Monday - Mooseriffic

Must-Read Monday Linky
If you don't already know it...I LOVE moose!  There is something majestic about the animal that I cannot get over.  You can only image how I reacted when I heard about this book...

This is a Moose is about...well...a...moose.  He is no ordinary moose, he wants to be an astronaut.  
There is no one better to teach him to follow his dreams than his lacrosse playing grandmother.  Throughout the story, the moose does not give up on his dream even though the director (narrator) keeps insisting that he needs an animal to "act like it is supposed to."  I love that no matter how upset the director gets the moose follows his dreams, with the help of his friends and family.
We can all learn something from this moose!  Follow your dreams no matter who tries to hold you back.
My kiddos loved this book, but I think that I will use it at the beginning of next school year while we build a classroom community.

Happy Reading!
