I've gotta be honest: the book is presented as a riddle and the answer totally took me by surprised. It was fun to go back and look at what Milly likes and how it fits into the riddle's answer.

Bright colorful pictures on each page to engage the child. I daughter loved the book and it contains good vocabulary to learn. The book it self would be the activity and having the children guess the riddle about Silly Milly. It would be fun to see what the children come up with.

Lewison, Wendy Cheyette. Silly Milly. (2010)

Annotation: Miss Milly like words like "butter" and "seeds", but does not like words that seem to go with the words she does like such as "bread" and "flowers". You have to figure out why she likes those words but not the other.

Themes: spelling, likes and dislikes

Ways to use with children: Since this is a riddle book you can have the students figure out why she likes those words. You can also talk about the relationships between the words put together.

An interesting early reader book where Silly Milly only likes things that have double letters in them. The book has a repetitive pattern and rhyming to help beginning readers decode the text. However, the pictures, while fun and silly are overly detailed which makes the pictures hard to decode for picture support to understand the text which is needed at this level of reading.

Bright pictures full of discussion possibilities, add a lot to this book. Short sentences on each page, with a mystery solved on the last page. Double letter words are part of this book, adding a skill level for new readers. Silly story definitely appeals to new young readers, helping to mask sounding out word frustrations.
This book contains a riddle about Miss Milly. Your child has to figure out why she is so silly! My 6-year-old thought this was a funny book, and it was a solid Level One read.
Perfect book for a beginning reader. The pictures are great and the story is entertaining for both boys and girls
