This book would be work very well to get kids to use their imagination. This would just be a fun book to read to kids as a time killer for when I do a lesson a little quicker than I expected. It's a poem book so it rhymes and is a fun book to listen to. I think that the kids in my classroom would really enjoy it.

Great book for reading aloud to young kids. Fun illustrations!

I want to read this one when doing fairy houses at school or in a library setting. Adding trolls, goblins, and the like into the picture makes the activity appeal more to boys.
