One time it is good for a boy to go in the girl's bathroom

I read this book in a literature circle in an education class at my university. I quite enjoyed it even being 21 years old. The characters were dynamic and every chapter read was a surprise in itself. It opened my eyes to what it was like to be in fifth grade again.
I read this book in a literature circle in an education class at my university. I quite enjoyed it even being 21 years old. The characters were dynamic and every chapter read was a surprise in itself. It opened my eyes to what it was like to be in fifth grade again.
The story puts you in the shoes of the main character and you get to relive the fifth grade experience again. You get to see the trails of what it is like to be a child that does not feel like they are accepted and the ways the child will act out and attempt to fit in. I was aware of all the things a child goes through but how big of an impact it had on the child kind of blurred until I read this book. Peer acceptance is a big thing to a student but also how a teacher treats a student plays a large role in their success. This book shows this.
You are reminded of the ways kids interact, what it was like to have crushes, the embarrassment tied to accidentally walking into the bathroom of the opposite sex, and what it is like to be left alone. You remember hall passes, getting gold stars or praise, and recess.
This book teaches good moral lessons to kids and adults alike. It also provides future educators or parent on ideas on how to deal with, and properly communicate with, students or kid who feel isolated.
This is an fun story which captures the imagination and uses an array of good vocabulary for a fifth grade reader (approximate). I would strongly recommend it to be implemented in a classroom for literature circles, buddy and/or independent readings because it is an interesting story which kids can connect to and really get into. Students will get into the book starting with just the cover. Just wait until they flip through the pages.

    There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom

    There¿s a Boy in the Girls Bathroom is about a boy named Bradley who doesn¿t have any friends but there was a new kid at his school named Jeff. At first Jeff wants to be Bradley¿s friend but he realized that Bradley wasn¿t a good friend. He was a bully. Bradley was a bully because he didn¿t have any friends. He changed latter in the book and he got what he wanted a gold star. I didn¿t like this book because it was wired. It was confusing too. The book talks about stupid stuff.
