Favorite Read Alouds #9 -- The Phantom Tollbooth

To find out why I read aloud to students, start here.

My fourth grade teacher read it to me and I read it to my students.  The humor isn't dated.  My class discusses idioms and other literary devices.  June 2014: I just added a free printable graphic organizer for students to collect and learn new vocabulary.

In case you have missed this book, Milo finds a toy tollbooth in his room and it transports him to another land.  He meets interesting creatures and must right a wrong, learning much about learning along the way.

  1. I love, love, LOVE this book! I was fortunate enough to meet Norton Juster and hear him talk about what inspired him to write this and other books last summer.

    1. Oh, that would be amazing. I love meeting authors and having conversations about their books.
