Weezer Changes the World

Here’s another book that made it to Millie’s 5 Paws List!

Weezer Changes the World by David McPhail

After Weezer, a dog, is struck by lightning, he is able to do some pretty remarkable things.–Like cure diseases and bring peace between leaders. 

Out of the tons of books I read, this one stands out for me.  It’s simplistic text and illustrations create a certain mood that makes me smile.  However, there are also little extras throughout the story that convey Weezer’s intelligence to take the story to another level.  Read it and you’ll see what I mean.

Teaching Idea:  After sharing this read-aloud, ask students to imagine what it would be like if their dogs (or other pets) suddenly possessed human qualities.
