    How many paperboys (or girls) are even left? A beautiful glimpse of something I'm pretty sure is gone forever.

    Loved the illustrations in this one, partly because I really like that part of the day (when I'm up and awake!).

    Summary:This book talks about what goes on in a paperboys life. When the paperboy gets up it is still dark outside and it is always cold even in the summer time. When it is cold in the winter it is hard for him to get out of bed. They quietly walk down stairs and eat breakfast along with his dog. They quickly go out to the garage and fold the newspapers and place them in the red bad. He then gets on his bike and starts his route. The Paperboy knows it without even thinking. Little by little the world around him wake up. when the paperboy has delivered his last paper him and his dog race home. They head back home and crawl back into their warm beds to get ready for the next morning. Personal:I thought this book was a cute one. Very colorful and detailed pictures. I think reading this book will help children understand how this works. Extension: 1. I would use this to help children understand what paperboys do and their jobs. 2. I would use this to explain that not all people work during the day.

    This shorter narrative shows how the young paperboy has to get up early and do his job of delivering the newspaper to his community. After doing his job in the silent morning, the community wakes up with the paperboy (and his dog) go back to bed.Great book about Dav Pilkey's first job. His website has an interview with him about this book that is very charming, and kids will love it. My students really enjoyed this at the beginning of our writing workshop unit.

    This is the story of the paperboy and how he works while everyone else is fast asleep. This book evokes a powerful message about the determination of a young boy to work hard and earn money. The illustrations are beautiful, portraying the quiet of the night and the waking of the early morning sun.

    This is a story about a young boy who has a paper route and his devoted dog who accompanies him. They work hard on their route and yet when "All the world is asleep except for the paperboy and his dog. And this is the time when they are the happiest." At the end of their route, they both go back to bed satisfied that "their work is done." An endearing book to read to your child, especially at bedtime.

    This is a good example of realistic fiction because it shows how a little boy goes through his morning routine. His routine is very different from most children, but the reader can still relate to it.Age Appropriateness: Primary/ Intermediate

    This is a good, contemplative book about a paperboy going through his route, waking at night and returning when his house awakens.

    This book takes us with a young boy on his morning paper route. The illustrations are beautifully done with night time colors. This book shows how even a young person can take on responsibility, doing what they should and need to do when they have to...even when they might rather stay in bed.

    I thought this was a cute story with fantastic illustrations. The story was about a young boy who gets up and delivers his papers. The story takes you through his route with his dog. We see them deliver the papers in the dark and then the sun come up and the neighborhood starts to wake up. The paperboy and his dog finish the route and head home to go back to bed and dream. The story was cute and I think would be interesting for kids. The illustrations are the best part. They are colorful and take up full pages. They Lots of color is used and the shadows and the skies are really interesting as it goes from dark to light outside.

    This job helps a young and egocentric child appreciate the work that other people do, although the paper route is no longer like this. It also has beautiful illustrations that I child will admire as he or she is read to.
  • (3/5)
    Too subtle & quiet, and, unfortunately, obsolete. I do agree it's lovely. Maybe it could be used as historical fiction?

    This book describes a boy's routine or route in the morning as he prepares to complete his job as a paper boy. It describes his struggle to get out of his warm bed and tackle the job at hand. He is accompanied by his dog and this companionship seems to make the job easier. The boy seems to find peace in the quiet of the early morning. Once his job is complete he then heads back to bed. This book could be a good read to discuss responsibility and routines. It shows once your work is done it is time for rest.

    The Paper Boy is about a boy on his paper route one Saturday morning. The reader experiences what it's like to get up early on the weekend, before anyone else is awake, in order to complete your work. The boy and his dog roll up the papers and secure them to his bike, and then they ride all through the neighborhood, him on his bike and his dog running behind him. It describes the setting and the route. Finally, when all his work is finished, the paper boy and his dog can go home and get back into bed.This is a wonderful book. For one, the illustrations are amazing. It has amazing synergy between the illustrations and the story. It's also a great lesson about the value of working hard even when you'd rather sleep in or watch cartoons. The paperboy and his dog also get to see a world that people who aren't awake at that hour don't.

    I liked this book because of the amazing illustrations it had. It won a Caldecott Medal and was great to look at simply for the visuals. However, I did not particularly love the story line. The plot was about a boy and his dog that got up one morning to deliver newspapers. The author described how it was very early in the morning and that no one but the paperboy and his dog were awake. This probably would be good for emerging readers to practice their fluency, but other than that the writing did not seem too engaging. However, there was a subtle theme of friendship interwoven into the book as the illustrations showed the dog doing everything the paperboy had to do. They were together the entire time and even went back to sleep together after all the papers had been delivered. The main purpose of this book was to describe what a paperboy does.

    The paperboy is going back to sleep while everyone is just waking up. This story is a day in the life of the paperboy and his dog. A story that can be told to children to get an idea of how the newspaper on their porch gets there every morning. The illustrations are beautiful and rich. I love the night sky and when the sun begins to rise. I would recommend for children in grades 1-3.

    Summary: This book is about a boy with a paper route who wakes up before anybody else in his family and before the sun rises. He wakes up everyday to deliver papers. Without him waking up nobody would be able to get their paper on time for the day. It turns out that his paper route with his dog is his favorite time of the day. Personal: I liked this book because it shows responsibility in the child and how important that is.Classroom extension: This book could be read aloud to the class to show them the importance of responsibility.This book could be used to create an activity to have the students draw themselves in their happiest place like the paperboy in his route.

    The Caldecott Book written by Dav Pilkey shows the difficult job that the paperboy has. While all the world is asleep, the paperboy is up delivering newspapers. As the paperboy and his dog are on their last newspaper, they go home and go to sleep, while the entire world is just waking up. The illustrations in this book are great! it shows throughout the night to the early morning as the sun is rising. There is a small amount of text in the story, but fairly easy pictures to depict. Although the paperboy does not always want to wake up early, that is his job and it must get done!

    The picture book Paperboy, was an amazing ready. The Paperboy is a silver honor Caldecott picture book that tells a story about a young boy who gets up early in the morning before his family. The boy holds the job of delivering newspapers with his dog each morning. This is a great story that can be told to children to get an idea of how the newspaper arrives every morning. The illustrations are unique, beautiful, and rich. Each illustration is dark, as the whole story takes place during the nighttime. Delivering newspapers seems like a simple task, but the descriptive language within the book perfectly describes the hard work it takes each morning. For example, “It’s hard to ride a bike when you are loaded down with newspapers.” This shows the hard work and dedication it takes to be a paperboy. Overall, the main idea of this book is what it takes to be a paperboy and the responsibilities that come along with it.

    This is a realistic fiction picture book for children in K-5th grade. It is about a boy and his dog that wakes up very early to deliver the papers every morning. The story describes the struggle of waking up and facing the cold mornings, but the boy is a hard worker and enjoys his bike rides along his paper route. And when he returns, the world begins to wake up, and the paperboy gets to fall back asleep and dream. This has a great central message of the rewards of working hard. The story starts with, “The mornings of the paperboy are still dark and they are always cold even in the summer. And on these cold mornings the paperboy’s bed is still warm and it is always hard to get out-even for his dog…” I know this is very relatable to me, waking up is always the hardest part of my day, especially when it is early and cold. But the paperboy’s dedication is admirable, and the paperboy describes how much he enjoys it, “All of the world is asleep except for the paperboy and his dog. And this is the time when they are the happiest.” Though sometimes it is difficult, hard work and dedication does pay off.

    It’s hard to believe that The Paperboy was written and illustrated by the same guy who brought us Captain Underpants and the Perilous Plot of Professor Poopypants! The Paperboy is such a thoughtfully written and beautifully illustrated picture book that it seems out of character with Pilkey’s ouvre. Nonetheless, this story of a responsible and industrious paperboy does bound from the page with verve of the CU, but lacking the bathroom humor. The exquisite illustrations emulate the paintings of Marc Chagall, in media, color, and style, and the writing is restrained and precise, relating the rounds of paperboy with straightforward style. Unlike CU, parents and teachers alike will take delight when their children read The Paperboy.
