Fern Smith Classroom Ideas Storybook Monday - John, Paul, George and Ben AND a GIVEAWAY!
John, Paul, George & Ben
By Lane Smith
This week I want to talk to you about John, Paul, George and Ben. This is a terrific book about four lads, George Washington, John Hancock, Paul Revere and Ben Franklin...Oh, yeah, there is a fifth lad, Tom, Thomas Jefferson, who was annoyingly independent! You students will love how these five boys get in trouble, but turn out OK as five of our Founding Fathers. Lane Smith's illustrations are hysterical, you might already know him from The True Story of the Three Little Pigs, or The Stinky Cheeseman and Other Fairly Stupid Tales. I ♥love him.
BUT, in the end of this story, there is a great section on what each lad did as an adult and it makes a terrific transition into a Presidents' Day lesson.
Life lessons with literature!
If you don't have the book yet, you can win one with me!
I'm giving away a First Edition, hardback, with an embellished dust jacket, copy of this book. All that I ask is that you follow me and leave a comment how you follow. Blogger? Google+? Bloglovin'? Instagram? Twitter? Pinterest? TPT? It's that easy!
a Rafflecopter giveaway
I will announce the winner Thursday, so check back to see if it is you!
If you don't have the book, I recommend the audio version from Amazon. It is narrated by James Earl Jones. If your from my generation, it sounds like Darth Vader is reading the book to you! {Yes, I'm a Star Wars Geek, I'm good with that, I admit it, I own it!} 

There is a terrific lady reading it for you on YouTube. It lasts a little longer than six minutes, so after recess, turn out the lights, cool off and let someone else read to the class for a few minutes! :)
The second video is a 30 second introduction song to get your class excited about the book!
