An adorable picture book for K-2 that shows how a message
can change as you pass it on (telephone game).
An interesting interpretation with excellent illustrations
set during The Great Depression. Grades 3+
I wish I could say that this was a favorite. I found the story to be slow and disjointed. Also contains some illustrations that I found unnecessary and inappropriate.
Beautifully written, riveting story. Grades 5+
I have a lot of love for this book and all things Jason Reynolds writes. A powerful, raw, important story written for young adults, but adults will enjoy it as well.
Wishing you all a happy new reading year!
