Despite the Title, This Book is NOT Dull!

Meet the Dullards - Sara Pennypacker, Daniel Salmieri

A humorous picture book titled "Meet the Dullards" caught my eye at the library, so of course I HAD to check it out. It was totally worth my time and is worth yours too. It tells the tale of the Dullards- a dull family that doesn't want anything even remotely "fun". The kids however, have a different attitude. It makes for a fun book that children think is funny and ridiculous. This book would be great for teaching kids soft skills and manners and that every family is different. I would use this book for a "First Week of School" activity so that I can get to know each student's family. After they do a work sheet/coloring sheet describing their families to me, I would have the students come up with a fake family that was different in some way- maybe they only eat soup or maybe they cook food in the bathroom? Then they would write about that family in a story. This activity would work on character development and story/creative writing.
