Review: Le Rat
Le Rat by Elise Gravel
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
One in a series of humorous books about disgusting creatures, The Rat is a look at the black rat. It covers such topics as the rat's long, agile tail (it's good for balancing and picking noses), long teeth (they can chew through anything, including books) and disgusting taste in food (delicious electrical wires in tomato sauce, anyone?). Although silly and off-the-wall, The Rat contains real information that will tie in with curriculum.
What a gross & genius way to introduce the importance of the rat to children. I love The Rat's funny illustrations and the fact that a lesson is taught to children as they laugh. Rats are gross and disgusting of course, but this humorous book is a huge success at making them funny and interesting. Love the illustrations!
I was given this book for an honest review. The Rat is very well crafted for young children. The humor and creativity show the importance of a usually yucky subject.
