Welcome to Tomie's Childhood Home!
Book 1 of Tomie dePaola's First Chapter Book Series
I just love this series which combines Tomie dePaola’s delightful world view with a warm and gentle picture of life as it was when he was a boy. It is an exciting introduction to the world of chapter books, filled with dePaola’s characteristic warmth and whimsy. The fact that it is also autobiographical adds a dimension of richness to these stories that simply can’t be beat for captivating young readers, making them ask for more.
The text is written at a late-2nd/early-3rd grade level for most students.
Very highly recommended!
