Creative Book Report

The assignment was fairly simple-

1.       Complete a book containing at least 125 pages. (My son chose The Call of the Wild by Jack London.)
2.       Completely cover a cereal box with paper.
3.       Create a fun cereal name that reflects your book and decorate the front of your box. (My son decided to name his cereal Wild Buck Wheaties. So creative, I know!)

4.       Decorate the top of your box with the Title, Author, and Illustrator of your book.

5.       Decorate the bottom of your box with your name and date. (My son added a box top!)

6.       Fill the sides of your cereal box with fun facts about the book. Be original! We laughed as my son inserted some comical statements here:


Vitamin A for AWESOME
Vitamin C for COOL
Vitamin D for DARING

Serving size- 1 ton of Action

Side Effects May Include:
