Read full description of the books Sam Samurai:Scieszka is funny, as always, and I was a little worried about the learning value of this book when I started. The boys are assigned haiku homework, in the 5-7-5 format!
They warp to 17th Century Japan just before Basho's birth, and have a grand adventure learning about renga and hokku. They eventually write some great haiku to turn into their teacher!
This would be recommended to kids about 8-9 years old learning about haiku and how NOT TO WRITE it in the 5-7-5 format. However, the students could do a lesson to perhaps improve upon the boys' haiku by using more cutting words and less punctuation- or do their own book report written in a renga in teams.
