You Must Be This Tall for Book Talk Thursday

One problem and many solutions for Frank and Harold. What will they do to ride The Rattler at the fair?

Have you ever been to an amusement park and can't ride a ride because you weren't tall enough? What about your kids? This has happened to my family plenty of times, but we follow the rules and move on. But you will be surprised at what Frank and Harold do to ride the Rattler at the fair in the book You Must Be This Tall by Steve Weinberg. {Affiliate inks provided to fund future book purchases.}

Book Summary

Frank and Harold have gone to the fair and want to ride the exciting roller coaster, The Rattler. Frank is tall enough to ride the Rattler, but Harold is not. They go through many measures like dressing up and stretching to get Harold ready to ride the Rattler. When none of their ideas work, they go to extreme measures to get past the Pig and ride the Rattler.

Classroom Application

Frank and Harold think that it is unfair that Harold can't ride the Rattler. Many children have had that happen to them at some point and can sympathize. I love how Frank and Harold are persistent in trying to ride and have found a solution to their problem. The book is perfect for teaching conflict resolution and finding the best solution to a problem. It also helps show that persistence can pay off. 

You Must Be This Tall by Steve Weinberg is a fun book that children of ages will enjoy!
