The Phantom Tollbooth: A Teaching Guide

These teacher-tested lessons can be used by homeschoolers as part of a homeschool curriculum or by students who just want to be guided as they read a really great book. It can also be used by teachers who may be teaching this book to their classes, since it includes many great teaching ideas!

Included in this ebook are a synopsis of the story, information about the author, ideas to use before you read, Do Nows, vocabulary activities, chapter by chapter reading assignments, journal ideas, and an end of book project. Each lesson also has a focus section. The topics for the focus lessons include synonyms, idioms, point of view and persuasive writing.

Besides learning about a great book, you will also do some fun activities with words, including synonyms and idioms. You'll also meet some really interesting characters as you accompany Milo on an amazing journey!


The Phantom Tollbooth begins with Milo, the main character, who is feeling bored with his life and everything in it. Mysteriously, a tollbooth appears in his room and takes him on a wonderful adventure in the Lands Beyond. There he meets Tock, a watchdog who has a clock in his side, and the two travel to the two cities of Dictionopolis and Digitopolis in search of the twin princesses, Rhyme and Reason.

Along the way Milo has many adventures including a trip to the Island of Conclusions (you have to jump to get there), a visit to the Valley of Sound (where there is no sound at all) and a stop at the Point of View (where Milo meets Alex Bing, a boy who floats in the air until his feet grow down to touch the earth so that he will always have the same view of things)...

Professional Reviews

Miraculous tollbooth
How did I miss this as an avid childhood reader? The messages of the story are sound lessons a reader of any age can relate to. The characters, named for their particular attributes, are an exercise in literary allegory.

This is a book I'll be getting for my grandchildren!
