Oh boy I loved this book, what a sweet and sometimes heartbreaking story of what it's like to be different in a world that's not so nice all the time, and to keep your chin up and be nice!!!
This book is a must read for everyone. I highly recommend it for children grades 2nd-jr. high school. The author doesn't amazing job bringing out emotions and relating to children's personalities. Definitely a story that can build great character within its readers.
I read this with my 2nd grade daughter, fourth grade daughter (Who battles with self-esteem issues) and my 7th grade son... all of us truly enjoy this book. I believe we are now all a little kinder, more empathetic, and courageous...
I am a reading coach and have to read several books at once to teach with different grade levels. Thank you Audible for helping me keep up. This book was phenomenal for our 5th graders!
This is a well written wonderful story that will touch your heart. I loved it. I can't wait to read it to my 5/6 graders.
A surprisingly excellent thought – provoking book about a little boy born with very severe facial deformities. Told by the various people including his mom, his dad, his sister, his school friends and his school enemies. At first, I wasn't too interested, but then I simply could not put it down – or – since it was on Audible – turn it off. I am a grandmother and this is a book that I want my children and grandchildren to hear. I'm also a doctor, and I have certainly known people who have faced the challenges ,although maybe not so severe, as did the young man in this story.
we read this twice and truly enjoyed it twice! the book is already a warm and a real page turner. but once you add the voices you were able to receive the full experience.
