Sahara Special

Teaser Tuesday

Sahara Special
by Esme Raji Codell 

Sahara Special is a wonderful story about Sahara Jones, an underachieving but very bright student who must repeat 5th grade.  

Sahara loves to write, but much of what she has written ends up in the counselor's file and the educators think Sahara needs special education.  Except her new 5th grade teacher, "Miss Pointy," who is like no other teacher Sahara has known.  Kids will love it,--even reluctant readers, especially those who don't want to start back to school in a few weeks.  

I found myself laughing out loud at many parts.  Great for 4th to 8th graders, as well as their parents and teachers.
