Tight Times by Barbara Shook Hazen, Trina Schart Hyman

It is a story that touches your heart. Many of my students could relate to the characters. It engaged the students to discuss and write about their personal experience with poverty and they are 3rd graders. Other skills that it can be used for is inferencing and drawing conclusions.
