I am an upper elementary teacher who loves reading and sharing books with my students and fellow educators.

Hope Is a Ferris Wheel

Hope Is a Ferris Wheel - Robin Herrera This almost makes me want to assign vocabulary words and sentences with the hopes that I would receive something like what Star wrote! I would recommend this not only to my students, but also to teachers. I felt like this was a very real 5th grade outcast perspective. I cringed for Star when the students made fun of what she thought was her beautiful hair cut/color...not just because I can understand it as an adult, but I remember those moments as a child, and dread when they will happen to my kids. This book will stay with me, and I will be thinking about Star and Winter's future. Grades 5+ Read July 2014
