Adopt a Glurb!


Bibliographic Information: Gravel, E. Adopt a Glurb! (2010). U.S.: Blue Apple Books.

Brief Annotation: This is basically a description of what a “glurb” is.  From what I have gathered, it is a small, alien life form that one can raise as a pet.  They bite if cornered, learn to read and write, and many other things, but the most important thing is, “…the more glurbs you have, the more fun you’ll have!”

Genre: Science Fiction

Grade Level: 2-3

Readers who will like this: Students who like learning about new things, animals, and fictional things.

Rating/Response: 2. I can see this being used to supplement an assignment about creating something.  Students could create a new life-form and describe its characteristics.  Other than that, though, I’m out of ideas as to the uses of this book.

One question you would ask before a read aloud: How many animals do you know?  How are they alike and how are they different from each other?
