Tina’s Review: This book is excellent to help elementary students with situations they may encounter at school. This book addresses when to “speak up” versus keeping quiet. In this book Morgan learns the importance of telling the truth even though it is not a popular decision among her classmates. She helps her classmates learn how to handle bullies and help everyone to get along. This book also reflects on how Jesus Christ is an example of how to love everyone. This is a great book for 7-10 year olds. I love how the author also has included worksheets, word searches, and a definition page to explain some of the big words.
