Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Have you ever played telephone? It was a popular game in school. The teacher started at one side of the class quickly telling a student something and then each student had to quickly whisper it to the next student. By the time the final student was told the message, it rarely was the same.

Mac Barnett's book Telephone follows this theme. The message begins with one bird who is asked to tell Peter to go home for dinner. By the time the message reaches the end of the line, it's become a fantastic story. Find out what happens when you read Telephone.

Of all the kid's books I've read this year, Telephone was a gem. From the illustrations to the message, it's just a fun look at this popular game. I highly recommend this to a beginning reader and his or her parents or daycare provider.
