TITLE: Charlene The Star
I was very impressed with Charlene The Star. The story is written through Charlene’s voice. It shows how just because she looks different from the rest of her family, she’s really not. It also shows how everyone has their different talents and can help one another through determination.
TITLE: Charlene The Star and Hatttie’s HeroesIn this book about Charlene, we find her just about to come home to her family from Jumping For Joy Farm. By now Charlene is a champion jumper since she wasn’t much good at racing. There she meets Lily. Lily wants to be a racehorse in the worst way! Along with Lily, Charlene make several more friends. Among them are a chicken, a dog, a pig, a cat, and a sheep. Between all of them they gently encourage Lily to face her fears and to follow her dreams. Like Charlene The Star, Charlene The Star and Hattie’s Heroes is told by the animals and everything is seen through their eyes.
I highly recommend both of these entertaining books for your middle reader. Both books are encouraging for anyone who has different talents or even looks different from anybody else (or animal)!
