Telephone by Mac Barnett

Illustrated by Jen Carace

A mama bird on the power line sends a message along to her son Peter. But will the message reach him in time and in the same words as it was given?

Thoughts: I have fond memories of playing pass it on in elementary school. This would be a fun book to share with elementary students and then play a game of pass it on. The illustrations are bright and detailed. I like all the  different species of birds. Would pair well with Pass It On by Marilyn Sadler or Flight School by Lita Judge.

Themes: Birds, Words, Talking, Games, Elementary
