Teaching Children's Literature

“A children's story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children's story in the slightest.” ~C.S. Lewis

Boom Boom Go Away!


Bibliographic Information: Boom Boom Go Away, written by: Laura Geringer, Illustrated by: Bagram Ibatoulline, Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2010, 40pgs.

Reading Level:AD480L

Synopsis:  This Picture Book is a story about how to avoid going to bed while making noises.  In this book there is a gnome, elf, prince,knight, robot, mermaids, and bear who are all making noise.  When someone tells them to go to bed they all tell the person to hush son they can hear the sound they are making.  This book is full of onomatopoeia.

Rationale for Use:  This would make a great read aloud book to introduce children to the onomatopoeia.  This book also has rhyming in it so it would be good to use with young children to talk about rhyming

Common Core Connection: I would use this book to engage the children in group reading activities. (RL.K.10).  I would talk about the sound words and how they can use sound words in their own writing.
