This is a shelf of all the children's literature that I have read and love!
Guided Reading: Level L
This is an amazing book to show students that you can do and be anything you want to be. Grace is very brave in this book. The support of her family help her achieve a a role in a play that she has longed for. By the end the book you find out how amazing and brave grace is. I would incorporate this book into my class by asking my students if there was ever a time that they did not feel amazing. Then I would explain that they could do absolutely anything if they want to. I would also stress to them how important it is to believe in themselves.
