Runny Babbit by Shel Silverstein is a very funny book that switches the first letter of the words throughout the entire story! While this is a challenging book for most struggling readers/young readers, I think it is a fun story and the fact that they have to pay attention to the words since they are all switched up makes the students more engaged during reading! If I were to use this book in my class I would actually put it with a lesson on fluency and have students read different parts of the story. I think that the students would really enjoy reading this book themselves, and then I would ask them to write a sentence where they switch up the first letters like Silverstein does in this book.
