Shakespearience
The Cardturner | Louis Sachar

I did the audiobook for The Cardturner! I picked it up at the library before I went out of town but didn‘t listen to it until the drive back, Dec 1. It was way more interesting than a book about bridge (the card game) has any right to be!

Pictured is me with my 1st ornament, apparently as a toddler I was into unicorns so this ornament has been with me for over 3 decades!

And I'll poke your eyeballs out at your ears;
I've got besides two curling-stones,
And I'll crush you to bits, body and bones.“

“TRIP, TRAP, TRIP, TRAP,” over the bridge. (example of onomatopoeia)

the main reason I like this story and would like it in my classroom is for the repetition and all the onomatopoeias.

This classic story is adventurous and funny, with lots of repetition. Three billy goats work together to trick a mean troll, because the troll just wants to eat them. This story is written in a way understandable for young children and is a good nursery rhyme. It‘s also a good representation of family/friends sticking together in hard times.

“So snip, snap, snout, This tale told out.”. I liked the use of onomatopoeia in this book throughout the story, especially how they ended the story with it.

I would read this children to teach them that bigger isn‘t always better.
