If you have not read this story or if your grandchildren do not have a copy of it, I would highly recommend purchasing this amazing book.
It will make you laugh, cry, enlighten you and probably touch every possible emotion you possess.
This book tells an inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time. The friends he makes, the quality of the writing and the message it gives us is a must read for all of us! AND there is soon to be a movie! I can’t wait!
- When given the choice of being right or being kind…. always choose kind.
- Sometimes it’s good to start over. (Julian)
- It’s not enough to be friendly, you have to be a friend.
This book will spark great conversations between you and your grandchildren. Please share your thoughts in the comments of this blog! I would love to read them!
