My gifted fifth grade son does not enjoy reading. In order to keep up with the reading requirements for the gifted education program, we’ve had to bribe him, and come up with reward systems to make it through the 300+ page books every three weeks. I ordered this book to add to the library in my fourth grade classroom. When my son saw the book on the front seat of my car, he read the title and began to read the book. After he got to the end, he said, “O.K., I get it. I’ll read more. It’s important.” Message received! Thank you for delivering an encouraging message about the importance of reading.
