Snappsy the Alligator and his BFF - Blog Tour



      As most of you know, I teach fifth grade, and we LOVE picture books. This was an especially fun book to read aloud, because it’s HILARIOUS, and the kids could really relate. I love that my students already have their personalities down and they truly understand if they are people persons or not.
      We read Snappsy out loud and then they were asked to draw a scene they would add OR their favorite from the story.
I hope to elaborate more on this as the year goes on and more Snappsy adventures come out.
      My kids were definitely NOT too big to enjoy this story. Well done! 5th grade APPROVED!

BOOK DESCRIPTION
Now, these two rising picture book stars return with SNAPPSY THE ALLIGATOR AND HIS BEST FRIEND FOREVER (PROBABLY), on sale October 3, 2017, in which Snappsy reprises his role as a disgruntled protagonist. In their latest adventure, Snappsy and his loyal narrator discover the trials and error of friendship. You see, all Snappsy wants is a quiet evening to himself, but this pesky chicken (who insists he’s Snappsy’s best friend) won’t leave him alone. Friendship bracelets? Matching shirts? The sleepover of the century? Snappsy did not ask for any of this, but he might just be surprised at how nice it can be to have a friend.
 
With humor and sympathy, this giggle-inducing readaloud illuminates a situation we have all faced at some point—how sometimes, when we want a best friend so badly, we can come on too strong and overstep boundaries—as well as how magical it can feel when we get friendship right. Packed with silly, mischievous fun, kids won’t be able to hold back the laughs when reading this hilarious, pitch-perfect sequel to one of the funniest books of 2016.
