I recently read the book Fish In A Tree by Linda Mullaly Hunt. This is the review of this book (I am not being paid to give this review).
I thought this was an awesome book that every teacher should read!
This book was about a little girl who had trouble learning which also caused problems with fitting in. Things happened in the classroom due to her difficulties that made her seem like a trouble maker. The administration and teachers around her didn’t understand the problem and seemed to make it worse. It wasn’t until she got a new teacher that new understanding seemed to changer her life.
This would be a great book for an elementary or middle school classroom and library. I think that children with learning difficulties would enjoy this book and hopefully feel like they weren’t all alone. I also think teachers should read this so that they could see learning from the perspective of a student who just doesn’t seem to get it.
