Not for my oldest, or my youngest, good story, but not ready yet.
ok, my son's second grade teacher read this to his class, and when he told me this, I read it. THIS WAS NOT FOR 7 YEAR OLDS! Parents, it was a good story but James didn't understand it. At least it told him he could do anything he set his mind too.
As a teacher, I see more and more of my students NOT knowing how to use a dictionary. Since the onslaught of technology, kids can Google anything. This is an excellcent book for teaching kids the value of the spoken word and for standing up for what they believe in. Enjoy!

Clever story, loved the ending
This is a book that my 9-year-old son and I read aloud before bedtime over a few weeks. In the beginning, one might get the sense that student Nick Allen is a bit of a smart-aleck. But hang in there... the story is good, and the ending is delightful... and I might add, it made me a little bit emotional (in a good way).
