“All Shook Up is alternately wry, silly, thoughtful and laugh-out-loud funny.” BookPage magazine

Quick Classroom Idea

 

On page 14 in All Shook Up, Josh says you can tell a lot about a person by their coffee mug.  Using art supplies, have students design and decorate their own paper coffee mugs with slogans and illustrations that reflect their individuality and personality.
