- Thanks to the @kidlitexchange network for the review copy of this book - all opinions are my own. . โญ๏ธ โญ๏ธ โญ๏ธ โญ๏ธ โญ๏ธ for this cute early chapter book from Shelley Johannes. Beatrice Zinker is a girl who marches to the beat her own drum, even through it draws her some strange looks at home and at school. She has a friend in Lenny, who likes Beatrice's wild and wacky imagination, but Lenny and Beatrice have to spend the summer before third grade apart. When school starts again, Beatrice doesn't even recognize Lenny, who seems more concerned with looking cool and becoming friends with the new girl. Beatrice has to figure out if she can get her old friend back, and during the process she discovers that people can have more than one side to them after all. . . This book has a wonderful message of being yourself, not worrying about what others think, and thinking outside the box. Beatrice is a very relatable character for kids and the illustrations add another element of humor. While it's a probably a little too juvenile for my 5th graders, I would definitely add it to 2nd, 3rd, and even 4th grade classrooms!

- I came across this quote in a grad school reading this week. It's SO important to keep this in mind as you head into your classrooms. Even if a child is a citizen, they may have family members who are undocumented, and that can take a toll on them. #defenddaca and #callyoursenators! . . Here's what I said when I called today: "Hi, I'm a constituent from ______ and I'm calling to ask Senator ______ to take Congressional action and preserve the DACA program so that the Dreamers are able to continue contributing to our country and our state."
