Spoiler alert

This book is a cute read aloud about some magnets that live in the fridge. The family of five fridge magnets provide a perfect opporunity for anyone who likes to read aloud with different voices. The repetitive nature of the story also allows for kids to chime in to the story while you are reading. This story could also be told without the book as a storytelling feature with the audience providing the different things in the fridge that the magnets could explore.

Other lesson opportunities might include inferencing. We do not immediately know that the family is made up of magnets or by covering up the title and letting younger students guess that the family is located in a fridge.
