Bestselling author Dav Pilkey's timeless Caldecott Honor book about a boy, his dog, and the solitude they share before the world wakes up, now in a vibrantly remastered jacketed hardcover edition. In the still before dawn, while the rest of the world is sleeping, a boy and his dog leave the comfort of their warm bed to deliver newspapers. As the boy pedals his bike along a route he knows by heart, his dog runs by his side, both enjoying a world that, before sunrise, belongs only to them. Acclaimed author and artist Dav Pilkey celebrates the beauty found in silence and the peace that comes from being with a beloved friend in this newly remastered edition of his timeless, Caldecott Honor-winning picture book.

Caldecott honor book. The theme of this book is friendship. Friends in this book stick together, no matter what.

I loved how the little boy had so much responsibility and got what he needed to do done in the morning and got to go back to bed once everybody else was just starting their day.

The Paperboy by Dav Pilkey was written in 1997 and won the Caldecott award. This book leaves the reader feeling at peace and relaxed as the cool and dark tones of the pictures remind you of the early morning before the sun has begun to touch the earth. It tells a nice story of the boy who delivers the paper and how his morning is different than the norm.

The Paperboy written and illustrated by Dav Pilkey is a fiction picture book that won the silver Caldecott Honor. This book talks about a paper boy and his dogs morning routine from not wanting to wake up, to delivering the papers before the sun comes up, to coming home and going back to bed. #ucflae3414su19

DeannaP After reading the book I would have the students get into small groups and have them write about a scene in the book and question what the paper boy might be doing, thinking, and feeling. After they finish writing I would have them as a group write and act out the scene. An E.D strategy to go with this lesson would be to “offer ways of customizing the display of information” for example while acting out I may suggest one student being a narrator. 2mo
DeannaP An ESOL strategy to go with this would be to “use student pairs for team learning”. Lesson: http://teacher.scholastic.com/products/face/pdf/literacy-events/LiteracyEvent_Sa... 2mo
Macker11 I love the activity that you have the students doing after they read this book! They get to be creative and write about the scene in the book, then act it out! Acting it out, is definitely a good strategy for the ESOL learners! 2mo
Dylanburgett I‘ve never heard of this book before but since it‘s a Caldecott award winner I‘ll definitely have to check it out! 2mo
DrSpalding Quality resource however you are not being explicit about how you would use it in the classroom… RA for read aloud for example. 1mo

I loved the night illustrations and overall style the author uses. It is very simple, sweet, and whimsical.

This book is an exciting and sweet read about a paperboy and his dog. I found it very touching and it would be an amazing read for any animal lover. It had a dream like feel to it and I could imagine it to be a great bedtime story.

I love how the author tells the readers that the little boy and his dog knows their route by heart, even in the pitch black dark.

Genre: Caldecott
A short and sweet read. Before anyone else around is awake, the paperboy has already gotten up, delivered all of the neighborhood‘s papers, and gone back to sleep. I love the “starry night” illustrations in this book.

The Paperboy (RF) by Dave Pilkey, a Caldecott Honor Book, would be great for a Partner Reading (PR). This book describes the morning of a little boy who delivers papers with his dog. The Paperboy is a simple book that has good descriptive words that younger students and ESOL students can learn from. Also, students can learn about story sequence. The UDL principle that can be used is 2.4, promoting understanding across languages.

Edenmonet The ESOL strategies that can be used are 44, 2, and 11, which is focusing on predicting and sequence, promoting cooperation (small group), and placing language in meaningful context. Lesson Plan:

DrSpalding We no longer have paper boys per se, especially ones that ride their bikes. This could be used for social studies. Scholastic again is a high-quality resource. 5mo

I thought this would be a good book for students to understand early morning routines, or what late/early jobs are like. It also shows a good theme of responsibility. The boy‘s parents don‘t wake him up for work, he wakes up himself and goes to work on his own by his bike.

This book shows the responsibility of the paperboy as a young boy with his dog. He has to wake up before his other family members, leave his warm bed at home and deliver the paper to his neighborhood. When he gets back home, he goes back to bed to dream.
