it using building blocks, he makes friends with the other kids, even though he doesn t get to the moon.Discussion I was kind of astounded at the lack of review love for this book, which stems mostly, it seems, from two reasons 1 Marco is the only non human and no one seems to notice and 2 the story doesn t convey aresounding endorsement of the virtues of paying attention to the teacher in school As to the first point, I think that many kids go to school feeling like the only alien in a place where everyone else knows how to act and how to make friends And as to the second, well, it actually happens in real life that kids can t concentrate and or prefer to daydream rather than to pay attention Must we show kids only prescriptive primers Besides, if you re looking for positive message, how about the one that no matter how different you feel or look, it s possible to make friends in school Chast who is the staff cartoonist for the New Yorker Magazine as well as a popular author and illustrator , renders her watercolors in an entertaining and funny way, as always.Evaluation I think many young kids will relate to this story I found it delightful We read Too Busy Marco about a year ago, so when I saw this book at our local library, I thought I d check it out It s a fun tale about a bird who goes to school I think it would be a great book to read to a young child who is nervous about starting school.The narrative is simple and the illustrations are colorful and very expressive While this book is a bit too young for our girls, we enjoyed reading it together anyway We read Too

MartinThe Alphabet from A to Y With Bonus Letter Z so of course I added that to my personal book collection And when I saw this new one, I ordered it for the library This is definitely for kids and their families who will enjoy an offbeat school story Although I have loads of book reviews over the years, it had slipped my attention that one of my favorite cartoonists, Roz Chasthad illustrated a

This is definitely for kids and their families who will enjoy an offbeat school story This was a nice read Great pace, fun pictures and speech bubbles We liked Marco a lot The story, for me, did not hold together, though Marco was so distracted by his dream of going to the moon, that he could not focus at school He had a silly little plan to get to the moon, recruited help, and the plan was a bust I would have loved to see a solution to the problem, but instead, they all gave up and went out to recess The end I felt unresolved and a little disconnected about what this boo This was a nice

and not addressed that he was the only bird at a people school It s not a bad book a fun enough read aloud with a great little character I am not ruining it if I tell you that one of the thoughts swirling through Marco s little bird head is, Why do I like marshmallows so, so much This is one of several things he really, really wants to know Chast is brilliant Marco is the perfect foil for the inanity of School Then again, everybody comes off a little off, which makes this feel like a happy party of human suffering La. A confusing book about a bird that is bored before his mother makes him go to school Apparently he gets there really early and plays by himself until the other kids and adults get there He has trouble concentrating and his mind wanders and latches onto the idea of being the first bird in space He suffers through naptime until it s playtime and he is finally able to instruct everyone on how to build a tower to the moon.There is really no discussion of a teacher, paying attention, learning less A confusing book about a bird that is bored before his mother makes him go to school Apparently he gets there really early and plays by himself until the other kids and adults get there He has trouble concentrating and his mind wanders and latches onto the idea of being the first bird in space He suffers through naptime until it s playtime and he is finally able to instruct everyone on how to build a tower to the moon.There is really no discussion of a teacher, paying attention, learning lessons, etc Another newspaper suggestion that didn t pan out.
