I enjoyed reading this story because the boy in this story is determined to take on his role as the paperboy. I like how the boy is motivated to do his job while also dreaming about his future. I would use this in a classroom to ask students what responsibilities they have or what dreams they will to accomplish.
The Paperboy won a Caldecott Honor in 1997. This story is about a boy and his dog as they deliver the newspaper. The story is one about dreaming and hard work. The illustrations seem to be oil pastel, since the story is set in the early morning the oil pastels are a great choice since this requires lots of blending.
