This book is meant for 2nd-3rd grade students. This book is for elementary students that require practice in reading comprehension skills. The book came about because of a particular student. Comprehension was a challenge, and none of the stories I found in books resonated with her until we read a story about a woman buying a hat. The story was accompanied by a picture of several hats sitting on stands. This student immediately decided that the pictures showed “hat cakes,” and a joke was born. She thought that hat cakes were hilarious, and I saw my way in. I couldn’t find the kind of stories I wanted already on the market, so I wrote them myself. This book was fun to write, and all of the stories in this book and the other Silly Stories volumes have been read, laughed at, and loved by real elementary students. I hope you and your students enjoy these stories as much as I do.
