Book: Grandpa’s Corner Store by: Dyanne Disalvo-Ryan
Book Introduction: Our read aloud today will help us think about an idea that we are studying in social studies
– what buyers/consumers are willing to pay for goods. Sometimes our moms buy groceries at a big store
“Wal-Mart” (or another store your students frequent). But sometimes our moms stop at a small store like
“Corley’s” (or another convenient store your students know). What are the advantages/good things about
going to a big store? What are the advantages/good things about a smaller store?
In the fictional story we’ll read today, Lucy’s Grandpa has a small store and she is worried about the business
he’s going to lose when the brand new BIG supermarket opens.
