George Shrinks

Everyday chores become adventures when George shrinks in this entertaining picture book by William Joyce.  The illustrations have many details to talk about and any one of them would be a great starter for a descriptive paragraph.  A more creative assignment is for the student to imagine his or herself shrunken at home without parents around to help.  Younger students can write an ending to “If I shrank, I would…” and draw a picture.
