I feel like such a cheat, putting this book on my 'read' bookshelf. But, I'd be lying if I told you that I didn't read this book many many many many times when I was young and that it was a big part of my early reading days. ( I still don't know why I liked it so much.) A man. A hotdog truck. The name Stan. All sounds pretty original to me. Original in a weird, wonderful way. And I love every bit of it.
Geoffrey who is in kindergarten read this to me last night. It is his book for AR points. I thought he did a great job as it is a level 2 book. I had to help him with only some of the words. I liked that the story is about a retired man, Stan, and what he does after he retires from his job. Most of the fiction books geared for young readers seem to be about cute animals or children.
