Drummer Hoff

by Barbara Emberley
Simon & Schuster Children's

A cumulative folk song in which seven soldiers build a magnificent cannon, but Drummer Hoff fires it off.


Let's Talk:

Ideas to Explore Together

Before reading: Look at the cover of the book. What do you think the book might be about? One sentence you will hear over and over in the book is "Drummer Hoff fired it off." What do you think that means?

As you read: Who are the people in the story? Are they special? Why? What do we call words like Hoff / off; Bammer / rammer, etc?

After you read: What did Drummer Hoff fire off? Why do you think he had to do that? What do you think the soldiers did next?
