    Great Book!

    This wonderful story should be read to every child! Everyone is unique and a junkyard wonder in their own way. Fabulous illustrations in Patricia Polacco's great style!

    An extraordinary book that will empower ALL children!

    This amazing book can be considered the sequel to "Thank You Mr. Falker" by the great Patricia Polacco. It follows the autobiographical Tricia the following year, when she attends a new school and is placed in a special education class. Though the children are shunned by other members of the school community and their class is called the "junkyard," their teacher makes them see the potential and possibilities in who they are and how they can follow their dreams. The book has sad moments as one of the students dies as a result of a physical disability, but the end of the book is so powerful and moving that it should be required reading for all teachers and older students. Highly recommended as a read aloud in the classroom and at home especially for the teachers and parents of special needs children, but you do not need to have children to appreciate the impact of this outstanding piece of children's literature.

    Gift for granddaughter

    My 8-year old granddaughter asked for books by Polacco. I bought the book as a gift for her. I chose this one because I am a retired learning disabilities teacher.
