I am an avid reader and love to get book recommendations from others. Mrs. Slagen (5th grade) and Mrs. Jolley (library) both recommended this book to me and I recently finished listening to it in the car. It tells a wonderful story of a 6th grader who struggles with fitting in and dealing with her undiscovered learning disability. While addressing these important topics, the book also inspires the reader to think about empathy and how important it is to show kindness to others. I would highly recommend this book to 4th graders and beyond.
As I wrote on my home page, I have been a Counselor at the South School for over 10 years. I am constantly trying to improve my skills as a Counselor and to learn new strategies that I can pass along to my students.
