Jude loves Richard Scarry books. Jude is very detail oriented so he loves looking at all of the tiny pictures. This particular book is a little odd from an adult perspective. Is Bruno a mentally-challenged adult? What is Miss Honey's connection to him?
I can't figure out Miss Honey & Bruno's relationship (they live together and sleep in the same room--yet he still calls her "Miss Honey" and she seems quite motherly toward him; she makes him breakfast and he drives her to school; she calls him at recess time and chastises him for eating ice cream for lunch; he brings her a rose and asks her on a date. Weird. Still, kids never question it.
This book is a little odd. Miss Honey lives with Bruno. She cooks for him and checks on him throughout the day yet at the end he asks her out to dinner. I would put this in a class library but don't know that I would really use it in a lesson. Grades 1st and 2nd.
