Here's what I read this week:
This book was The Ugly Duckling with a wonderful twist. Kelp grows up a narwhal but he is really a unicorn. But unlike in The Ugly Duckling, Kelp, is accepted by both of his communities. It's a heartwarming story that would teach kids about accepting and embracing differences.
This book is simply hilarious. It emphasizes the point, "Be careful what you wish for." Kids will want it read again and again.
A fractured Cinderella tale where the Cinderella character plays baseball? What wouldn't I love about that? I can't wait to share this one with my class during our fractured tale unit.
When I read this book this week I hadn't heard the criticism and discussion about the representations in this book. Here are two different points of view by Justine Ireland and Sabaa Tahir.
