    I always start out the year reading Thank You Mr. Falkner by Patricia Polacco. It is about a girl who could not read and a boy who made fun of her. Her new teacher, Mr. Falkner, helped her learn to read. The surprize at the end is the best when the reader finds out that the author was that little girl. This book gave me an opportunity to discuss class bullies and overcoming reading difficulty. The children always enjoy the book.
