Craft moves: precise word choice, character personality traits, sensory details.

ARTabroad: Beginning with a Beautiful OOPS!

How to Heal a Broken Wing I purchased this book last year and my class loved the beautiful story about a little bird who is lying on the sidewalk with a broken wing. Everyone is in such a hurry that they walk by without even noticing. Everyone that is, except a small boy. He takes the bird home and cares for it until it is ready to be set free. This is a beautiful story.

Mrs Jump's class: I LOVE BOOKS!!

August Pullman was born with a severe facial deformity and was home schooled. Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, he wants to be treated like an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past Auggie’s face. The story begins from Auggie’s point of view, but switches to include classmates, his sister, and her boyfriend. These perspectives converge into a portrait of one community’s struggle with empathy, compassion, and acceptance. Everyone should read this book. Appropriate for all ages.
