We finished The Cay today.  Since it’s the first time I read the book with third graders (and since it’s so intense), I decided to ask them to answer two questions for my own benefit.


1.  Rate the book on a scale of 1-5 stars (5 best).

2.  Would you recommend this book to future Peabody third graders?

Here were the responses:

8 students ranked the book at 5 stars,

4 kids gave it 4 1/2 stars

3 gave it 3 stars.

Nobody ranked it lower than a 3.

100% recommended it to other students.
