This book is great to use with kindergarten up to second grade. A Porcupine Named Fluffy is a great book to use on the first day of school in order to build acceptance for kindergarten and first grade. However, with second grade, I would use it to introduce adjectives. I would do this by reading the book while stopping to ask the students if they heard any words that described anything throughout the book. If they did hear one, I would write it on the board to be discussed later. After the book had been read and we had gone over adjectives as a whole, I would have the students write a list of five to ten adjectives that they feel described them.
