This is the perfect book for me to use with my second grade classroom to establish our Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) program for the upcoming school year. It reinforces the characteristics of being a good citizen, which will be a springboard in establishing our classroom environment. It is great that it is a book of rhyme, because my students are at risk struggling readers, some of whom have been identified as dyslexic. I am also using it as a base for many cross curricular activities, such as a lapbook of facts on penguins, a research and technology project on penguins, a canvas art painting of Bentley, and a weekend adventure binder of activities which will consist of writings, illustrations, and a rhyming caption as Bentley will go home each weekend with a different student.
