Book Bite #3- Sam and Dave Dig a Hole

It’s time for another Book Bite! 
If you enjoyed Book Bite #1 based around Alex Latimer’s, Lion vs. Rabbit and Book Bite #2 focused on Unicorn Thinks He's Pretty Great by Bob Shea, then you’re sure to adore BookBite #3! This time we’ve dug into 2014’s winner of the Caldecott Honor, Sam and Dave Dig a Hole written by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Jon Klassen.
Our students really dug this story. When I asked my first graders to create their own digging adventure from the point of view of the dog, they wrote as many as 7 pages! The words and pictures in this book are sure to illicit smiles, laughter and loud groans of exasperation from kids of all ages. (Do I count as a kid since I definitely laughed out loud when I opened the book?) If you haven’t checked out this book yet, go snag a copy now!
