I read it today, and the kids loved it! I actually had two girls cry because they got so connected with the character. I shared with others in the school, and by the end of the day 5 other teachers had checked the book out to read aloud to their class. It really helped them understand what they are about to be doing when we go to the nursing home. Most of them say those people are just "old people." After reading this book to them, they realized that each person is unique and special in his/her own way, and they are excited to learn the history of their life. YAY!

    Great idea about using this book to kick off a service project or any research project!!

        It's wonderful when it "clicks" with students in understanding each person is unique! Each person has their own story about what "something means" and its importance to them.
