“We-View” Wednesday – Nate the Great

Welcome to “We-View” Wednesday!  After months off, I’ve decided to bring back this feature.  My son is in second grade and is a fluent reader now.  We still read together daily and I thought it would benefit him to summarize (sometimes orally, sometimes written) books that we read.   At the same time you all will become familiar with books kids his age may like to read.   I hope you will join us!  Click here to read about the original intent of “We-View” Wednesday.

A few changes:

  • This will become a monthly feature instead of a weekly feature.  I will post “we-views” on the third Wednesday of every month.
  • I’m still learning different aspects to blogging and trying to become familiar with linky features.  I may eventually make this a linky, but for now, if you would like to join this feature, please email me at  dlittle {at} linkstoliteracy {dot} com by the Sunday before the third Wednesday of the month with your “we-view”.  I would love to be able to post multiple book “we-views” of different aged children.  Please make sure to include your blog address so that others can check you out, too!

Here is our latest “we-view”

Nate the Great and the Big Sniff by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat is a chapter book for fluent readers.  This is one in a series of books.  In this particular book, Nate has to find his dog Sludge who is stuck inside a department store.  Sludge inadvertently leaves clues to his whereabouts behind in the form of wet paw prints.  Will Nate find him before he leaves a mess behind as well?  I would recommend this book for kids ages 6-9.  My son read this book to me and then orally gave me this summary:

Nate the Great is a detective.  In this book, he loses his dog Sludge inside a big department store on a rainy day. He depends on Sludge to help him solve his cases.  Sludge leaves clues behind for Nate to follow.  The funniest part was when Nate had to look in the girl’s dressing room.  I would recommend this book to kids my age.
