If you need proof that picture books are for all ages, Oliver Jeffers‘ Stuck is first on the evidence list.
Everyone gets stuck. We all know what it feels like to get in that rut and not break free. Floyd starts out innocently enough with his kite, stuck in a tree. Very usual, right? But Floyd never does the predictable.
Kids will get the humour and examine the quirky illustrations with delight. If your kids are familiar with DRTA (Directed Reading Thinking Activity), try it with this book. Have fun showing them how the humour works because all of their predictions will be wrong! (So don’t use this book as your first lesson with DRTA).
