    I read a book to my 6th grade inclusion class this week that I was introduced to in a literacy class I am taking. It is "Thank You, Mr. Falker" by Patricia Polacco. I thought it was for younger readers, but I was wrong. My class loved it so much, they spontaneously burst into applause at the end- no small feat for cool 6th graders! The book is about a young girl who struggles to learn to read and feels awful about herself until she meets a very special teacher. I won't say too much more so as not to spoil the ending, but trust me..... I think the older kids will like it too because they can relate to the struggles the character faced in school. I totally loved this book- hope your kids will too.
