They have been suffering from bad food in the cafeteria until they dedicated to doing something about it.
This is a great story about leadership and being proactive in the school.
Cafeteria food is a hot topic any time of the school year but when our 5th grade students, in particular, begin their advocacy unit, school lunches are a worthy cause to speak up about. Is it healthy? Does it taste good? Do students have enough time to eat it? Should they be allowed to have chocolate milk? The curriculum has suggested mentor texts to use when you cover advocacy but I’m going to bet that it won’t be one that makes a reference to a historical figure like Toussaint L’Ouverture, one of the leaders of the Haitian Revolution. That’s part of what I enjoyed about this book, that the mom used a historical leader and his efforts to shed some light on what her son could try and do to solve a matter that is important to him and his peers. I also appreciated the length of this book. It’s got five short chapters in under fifty pages, making it a great choice for those who have been looking for shorter middle grade books. The backmatter includes review questions, text connections, and journal responses. I would recommend this for 4th through 6th grade readers.
I admired how the author has put together a contemporary story with a historical moral. It is well-written and easy to read. I hope youngsters who read this learn the value of non-violence and the need to take action for your beliefs. I also think it is great that the kids in the story are pro-active and do not just sit around and complain, waiting for someone else to set things right.
