I Wanna New Room

December5
Today in Library, Ms Lenger read us the following book:
Title:  I Wanna New Room
Author:  Karen Kaufman Orloff
Illustrator:  David Catrow
Here is a short summary of the story she read to you today:
Alex is a young child who now shares a room with his younger brother because they just got a new baby sister. He writes letters to his father asking for his own room because he does not like rooming with his brother, and finds him annoying. However, his dad keeps writing back to say no. His dad finally says he can have his own space for just himself, so they build a tree house. He happily plays in it by himself, but soon becomes lonely and asks his brother to join him (from http://www.islma.org/monarch.htm)
Have you ever asked your parents for something they wouldn’t give you? What happened?
Alex and his father wrote letters back and forth. What would you write to a parent or teacher about something you always wanted. What would you say to persuade them to let you have it?
Share your thoughts with us!
