“When you spend your whole life living in a hole, the only way you can go is up.”
This is definitely a book every teacher should incorporate into their classroom. Love that their are multiple themes throughout the book!
Holes by Louis Sachar, 1998. Newbery Award Winning Book. This novel is a classic! The author uses a very humorous approach in teaching children the lesson of how life can sometimes be unfair. In this book, Stanley takes us on a journey that entails mystery and new friendships! This chapter book is very easy to follow and keeps the reader on their toes.
Book #97: I had a preconceived notion about this book because I saw the movie a few years ago and rather enjoyed it, making me feel like I would enjoy the book as well, and I was right. The movie followed the book rather closely, but it still had been long enough since I saw the movie that not everything was as obvious to me while I was reading through...
There is no lake at Camp Green Lake.🕳

Holes, a RF novel written by Louis Sachar, would be a great book to use for LC. It is a SSYR Award winner! This book introduces so many endearing characters and teaches an amazing lesson about loyalty and friendships. (Cont.) #ucflae3414su19
Also, finished reading Holes to my son last week! He loved it and is now asking to find the companion guidebook! We even watched the movie over the weekend. The deal was he had to AR test on the book at school before we could watch the movie. He tested and got a 90% and 6+ AR points! He said it's one of his favorite books now 😊 Always a recommended for young (and young at heart!) readers 📚

Stanley has been unjustly sent to a boys' detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the warden makes the boys "build character" by spending all day, every day, digging holes five feet wide and five feet deep.
A rf book that won a Newbery award, that has always been able to keep my attention. This book, not only is love by all, it‘s a great movie! Whenever it is on tv I just have to watch it!
This book could be used in a LC, IR, PR, and even some parts can be RA.
Scholastic offers an amazing array of lesson plans for this book, one that liked would be: ‘Cause and Effect with The Treasure of Green Lake.
I have always loved this book and I think it would be a great book for middle school or high school audience due to the themes that are being touched on throughout the book. The students will be able to understand it better than younger audiences and it will teach them to be kind to everyone and everyone comes from a different background.
Contemporary Realistic Fiction Published in 1998
This story is about a boy Stanley Yelnats who is sent to Camp Green Lake. He was sent to this juvenile corrections facility because he was falsely accused of theft. This book touches on themes like racism, homelessness, illiteracy and arranged marriages.
My son asked to read Holes during nightly story time and how could I say no? One of my all-time favorite books and I can share it with my main man 💙 He's already asked to watch the movie once we finish the book 😊

This was a fun re-read for me. Done as a shared read aloud with my 10 yo son; we both enjoyed this story a lot together! I love how the writing style was easy to follow but also provided enough new vocabulary without being overwhelming for my kiddo. Fantastic story about bad luck and great friendships.
What‘s ur favorite middle grade fiction book? Looking for recommendations for our next read aloud 💛💛
This book looks like a great book to read out loud to a class and then have them read snippets on their own. The theme of deceit is prevalent in the beginnings of this novel. I think this would be a great book to read to students so they understand the concept of racism and how that is still present in our society today.
I think this book would be great for kids to learn about family relationships. Stanley in the book has a loving family, while Zero had no family. Racism is also mentioned in the book when African Americans were punished harder than the Caucasian males at the camp. Stanley and Zero are both misfits that when given the opportunity to prove themselves, they exhibit their strengths and rise above negative judgements from other people.
Stanley Yelnats is a boy who has bad luck due to a curse placed on his great-great-grandfather. He is sent to Camp Green Lake, a juvenile detention camp, for a crime he didn‘t commit. Stanley and the boys at the camp are forced to dig large holes in the dirt all day as punishment. Stanley then realizes that they are told to dig holes because the warden is searching for something under ground.

One of my favorite fellow podcast hosts joins my book podcast SSR to wrap up Manuary with a discussion of Holes! We get reacquainted with the unlucky Stanley Yelnats, as well as Camp Green Lake and its darkly funny cast of characters. We also talk about the book‘s darker themes — race, class, and the prison industrial complex (yep!) — and hot take culture. Click the link in my bio to listen! 🌵🎧
I hadn't read the book before now. It's a great story and so unique. The movie also stayed true to it which makes me happy.
“He was glad they called him Caveman. It meant they accepted him as a member of the group. He would have been glad even if they had called him Barf Bag.”

This is another re-read of a book I last read to/with my boys when they were little. Loved it (again)!
Iliena is very suspicious of the activity in the living room involving many shopping bags, and boxes that are not for her to sit in. Creeper mouth-sniffing in full effect. Listening to the last of this audiobook while I prepare to sort and wrap gifts. 🕳 🦎 🕳 👟 🕳

#31BookPics Day 6: Fats (one of the GatheringBooks ladies) has done a brilliant post about books and their #MovieAdaptation a few years back, including tagged book. Holes was one of the first middle grade novels my daughter enjoyed and we watched the #MovieAdaptation as soon as she finished the book. For more titles on Loss, Heartbreak, and Coming of Age in #MovieAdaptations, see here: https://wp.me/pDlzr-6gq
Loved this tightly plotted, funny yet terrifying middle grade story! It was one of my husband‘s favorites when he was a kid. I will definitely be recommending it to our son when he is a bit older.
The kid is reading Holes and I am so excited!!!!! I‘m recording the movie and will watch it together when he finishes. I might try and squeeze in a reread!
