Faith, Hope, and Ivy June

I'm a teacher and used this as a book club book for my 4th grade class. It is an easy way to show kids what it would be like to have to move to a school where you were the outcast. It also shows kids an obvious example of the differences between cultures within the U.S. as well as how material goods may not be the most important thing in life.

This title has:

Educational value
Great messages
Great role models
Too much consumerism
