The frindle is a great idea, but will it get Nick into a lot of trouble.

Not just a story about a boy renaming a pen! A story for teachers & parents as much as kids, it is an encouragement that a teacher, parent, etc. can make a huge impact on a child's life if they're willing to put in some effort, see through a child's manipulations and take the time to challenge (a.k.a. LOVE) them!

(Read the "Deconstructing Penguins" by Lawrence and Nancy Goldstone approach to using this book for a kids' book club...very helpful.)

This is one of my all-time favorite books. It is geared for kids, but the message in this book applies to us all. One person can make a difference. This lively book entertains, and is short enough that it can be read in a light-hearted afternoon.

Help your kids get back intot the groove of school -- get them this book to read as a back-to-school gift!

Even though this is a children's book, I really enjoyed this and have recommended it to several people since I've read it. Nick renames a pen a "Frindle" and the word spreads. His teacher tries to put an end to the nonsense, but the word is spreading and everyone is calling a pen a "Frindle". There's a lovely unexpected ending as well.

"Synopsis" by ,

Is Nick Allen a troublemaker?

He really just likes to liven things up at school — and he's always had plenty of great ideas. When Nick learns some interesting information about how words are created, suddenly he's got the inspiration for his best plan ever...the frindle. Who says a pen has to be called a pen? Why not call it a frindle? Things begin innocently enough as Nick gets his friends to use the new word. Then other people in town start saying frindle. Soon the school is in an uproar, and Nick has become a local hero. His teacher wants Nick to put an end to all this nonsense, but the funny thing is frindle doesn't belong to Nick anymore. The new word is spreading across the country, and there's nothing Nick can do to stop it.
