High level reader for 5th graders
on April 15, 2015
Well written book for a 5th grader and beyond. However, our school system wanted to use it as a summer reading book for grades K-5. I have read the book for this purpose and recommended that we DO NOT use for grades K-5. The reading level is much too high,and the metaphors are too great for the little ones. It would turn the children off and certainly the parents who would be reading to them and wondering why we would even recommend it!
