What did you like about this book?

 

Katherine:  I like that the seal was Tommy’s friend and that they played together.  The pictures are very detailed, and I like the big words and the amount of space in between them, so I can really see them.

 

Sarah:  I like that Stanley the seal, balanced the ball on his nose.  I like that Tommy is smiling when he eats with his family.  The pictures are colorful and bright.

 

What is your favorite part of the book?

 

Sarah:  That Stanley saves Tommy’s life.

 

Katherine:  When Tommy named the beach, Seal Beach because of Stanley.

 

Do you think the book teaches you a lesson?  What is it?

 

Katherine:  Yes, it teaches you not to get close to a bully.  If they get close to you get away fast.

 

Sarah:  Yes, it teaches that you should help people when they are in trouble.

 

Would you tell a friend about this book so they could read it too?

 

Sarah:  Yes, I’m going to tell my best friend, Celia.

 

Katherine:  Yes, I’m going to tell Lauren.
