Published in 2013, Harris finds his feet won the Kate Greenaway Medal for illustrations. This story is about a hare who has very large feet. Harris at first does not like his large feet but his grandad shows his all the benefits to having his big feet. I like this story because it has great illustrations and also has a good message about how everyone is different but you can still find beauty in the things that you may not like at first.

I couldn‘t wait so I started and finished the sequel to Out of My Mind after my reread. This book is all about Melody going to a summer camp for kids like her, and how she builds friendships (and a crush!) there. I honestly could read 5000+ pages of Melody just having a good time at an inclusive summer camp (with or without a plot) because I‘m just so happy for her - having her experience real FUN is so wholesome and heartwarming.

This book was published in 2008 and is about a hare and his grandfather. The hare has very large feet, and his grandfather teaches him all the things his feet can do for him. This story shows his journey to independence, and is an inspiring story. This story won the Kate Greenaway award. I would definitely use this in my classroom!

Ella Sarah Gets Dressed | Margaret Chodos-Irvine

I loved this in that, Ella Sarah knows exactly what she wants. The people around her have differing opinions, but she still stands her ground, to the end! This sends a great message that you can be different and have your own opinions and people will still doubt you, but there will be people in your corner that don‘t!

I picked up "The Surrender Tree" because we are looking to change our World Lit books and this one was an interesting story told in verse. I am glad I picked it up.
