With I AM LUCILLE BALL we are able to see that just by her being comfortable in her own skin Lucy was able to become greatness not just on television but in life. It doesn't mean she was accepted everywhere she went, but she was able to not allow that to stop her---and neither should we.
One of the great lessons that Lucy learned is that you have to trust that everything will be ok. She learned that when her dad used to throw her in the air, and she learned it when she trusted her gut and believed in her abilities. She also shows why it is so important for us not to compare ourselves to others. We have to love ourselves, and when we do we will be able to become exactly what is meant for us to become.
Another job well done by Brad Meltzer. I AM LUCILLE BALL gives us the tools necessary to remember that regardless what our age we have to never give up on ourselves.
Lucille Ball is in particular a favorite. It gives us tools to talk about being yourself, rejection, work ethic, being silly, leadership, tenacity, and being different. We love it.
I am reading one book out of this series each month for my 3rd graders class. The kids have LOVE this book series! It is funny and it gets their attention. The illustrations are eye catching and the comic book style woven in gives it a different look. And the comic book parts are the kids favorite for me to read aloud. When the classroom event is over these books do not sit on the shelf very long. My 3rd grader is constantly reading them to her little sister. It has combined the informational side of non fiction with the conversational side of a novel. This is hard to do, especially in a children's book. Each book in the series leaves the child with a message of not giving up, being them self, working hard, and being creative. Probably one of the best all around children's book series in a long time.
It is an educational book that tells the history of an amazing and ordinary woman and the journey she went through in her life.
This is the kind of book you feel good about giving to a child, in hopes that they'll feel a little inspired or brave after reading.
