Gaston by Kelly DiPucchio
If you are introducing theme to your students, I recommend Gaston by Kelly DiPucchio. Theme is the life lesson a reader can learn from the story. A bull dog is raised by poodles. When they meet a family of poodles at the park, the two families wonder if their puppies were switched at birth.
This book illustrates the idea that family is where you belong. I created a worksheet for students to find events in the story that illustrate the theme. To download the theme worksheet, please click here.
