The Incredible Book Eating Boy is an adorable story and a fun match for introducing reference materials elementary grades. If you do not have this book in your library, but do have access to a computer for presentation, a video read aloud is linked in additional materials. Second graders will identify with Henry, the main character in the story, who loved to eat books. Class members will discuss why we read books, answer questions about the story, give opinions about the story, and be introduced to reference books and their purposes. The final action gives young book lovers time to explore reference materials and become more familiar with them in small groups. The lesson plan calls for a SMARTBoard to be used for the graphic organizers, but teachers without this technology can create a poster or paper chart instead.
