Thank you to my friend Susan Dee for hooking me up with these two picture books last week.

An adorable book about memories. Does a feather remember it was once a bird? Does a letter remember it was once a word? Many opportunities to stop and discuss. Good for Grades K-3.

This non-fiction picture book was so inspiring. It is the true story of Alan Rabinowitz, a boy who struggles with stuttering. Will review further on Wednesday.

I actually finished this a couple of weeks ago, but forgot to include it in my post. My students and I enjoyed reading this addition to Wonder. I have to admit, I expected to understand and like Julian more while reading it, but I did not (well not a lot anyway). It does have a nice ending.
This is a re-read for the Southern Maine Writing Project. Enjoying it again!
