Can the Boys Escape the Nightingale?
by Traci Swain
A nightingale can be pretty scary…if you’re an inchworm!
After reading the Book of the Week—Inch by Inch by Leo Lionni—Allister, Elliott, and Max put themselves in the inchworm’s shoes and imagine how they would escape the nightingale from the story.
Watch the student-friendly video with your class to get kids excited to read this timeless and award-winning picture book. Ask students to make their own guesses about how the inchworm will (or won’t) get away, then read Inch by Inch together to discover what really happens!
How would your students get away from the nightingale? We’d love to hear from you! Please share with the Scholastic Book Clubs community on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #ScholasticBookClubs.
Allister, Elliott, and Max are three friends who work at Scholastic Book Clubs and love books—and they want to share the joy of reading with your students! Every week, you can find the Book Boys here on the Scholastic Book Clubs blog in a brand-new fun, educational, and engaging video about the Book of the Week. Play their videos in your classroom (or at home) to help your students connect to the story and explore the exciting world of reading.
