The Dunderheads – Review

The Dunderheads by Paul Fleischman

Age: 6-9 years old

The Dunderheads are a group of kids with very special talents. From a photographic memory to the ability to spit farther than anybody else in school. Mean teacher Miss Breakbone has a penchant for making students cry and confiscating everything she sees. The Dunderheads are a smarter group than she anticipated. By putting their individual strengths together, they are able to fight back against her mean ways and save the day for one of their close friends.

This book is adorable. An odd description, I know, but its fitting. This short book is a fun read for boys and girls alike in 1st and 2nd grade. This book will teach younger kids to stand up for themselves, acknowledge their individual talents and learn the art of sharing and teamwork.
