Recommended for: teachers, young readers

This is my all-time favorite book to read aloud to my classes. It's beautifully written, full of figurative language students can practice identifying, and is perfect for teaching theme and archetypes. My students hang on the edge of their seats to hear what's going to happen next to little Despereaux and the other wonderfully-written characters in this fairy tale-style adventure. The message of this book involves a love of learning and reading, which is, of course, great to sneak in wherever you can!
