Amazing Grace - Mary Hoffman, Caroline Binch

4th Grade

 

Grace is young girl that loves reading. Her elementary school is putting on a production of Peter Pan and she can't wait to audition for the role of Peter Pan. Her classmates soon find out the part she wants and they tell her that she can't play that part because she is a girl. Grace does not let this stop her and still auditions for the role. This book is great for teaching kids to stand out and lets them know that they can do anything they set their mind to. If there was a school play coming up I would read this to my class to encourage them to try out for a part in the play.
