    Heart Melting!!!

    Wow, this is a great book! It is memorable, tear bringing, and cute. The kid's stories with what the author thought of them was such a good idea. The melding of cultures was so awesome to read.The book really puts you into the teachers shoes. It inspires everybody to get up and write. This is a book for anyone who has a heart for kids or writing.

    cute!

    I picked up this book on a lark because the title PIQUED my CURIOSITY.. Anyway, I'm so glad that I did, because it turned out to be one of my top reads this year! I really loved the way Sam Swope captured the children's innocence and their zest for life, a quality that all children have, even if they're backgrounds are different. Party Island and Dear Tree were great chapters, reeeeally cute.

    A Must Read

    This is a must read for teachers, parents, and anyone who loves kids or writing or both! This is inspiring, heart-warming, and heart-breaking. As a teacher, I was feeling jealous of Mrs. Duncan for being there to witness all of this magic!
