This book is just begging for a creative writing lesson, and or a lesson on adjectives. Its great because many of the adjectives in the book are bolded and written to represent the word. The students will be able to see what adjectives do, they bring the story to live they add imagery. And so, imagery is another lesson that could be taught. Predicting would be good too if you stopped the book before the boy finds out what his dog is up too you could have the whole class write or draw what they think will happen.
