Coraline offers a very imaginative feature for children in upper elementary grades. It has very detailed, and descriptive mannerisms that really engage the reader. Although, it can also be scary, so i would not recommend this for younger grades. This book can relate to children because it is given from a child's perspective in moving to a new house, and making new friends, which many children may experience. Vocabulary scavenger hunts would be a fun activity for this books, as would sequencing segments from the book and putting them in the correct order. Character traits would be another activity to work on with this book.
