What I thought: I think this book is good for when bad experiences happen to children. It shows them how to deal with the way they feel and how to make things better. The book shows how to come together to help the others around you cope with the same experience, and it shows that you are not alone in the way you feel. I like this book because it showed many different ways to help your students deal with situations that may come up while you are teaching. The book shows that the students will turn to you for comfort and to be told what they can do. I think this book is good for when bad experiences happen to children.

Summary: A class comes back from a break to find that one of their classmates was in an accident and was killed. The teacher explains many different ways for the children to express their feelings so that they can morn their friend. Some get mad, some cry, and one thinks that it is her fault that he died. The teacher explains just because you wish something doesn't make it come true and that his death was not her fault. The teacher is an example of how to deal with the loss of their classmate, she shows emotion and cries with the students. In the end the students decide to make a memorial throughout the year, and at the end of the year they decide to give the memorial to his parents.

Classroom Extension
1) First I would probably use this book when something had happened to another classmate or another student in the school to show my students that sometimes bad things happen to good people. Then we would do an activity where the children would be able to express how they felt about what had happened.
2) Before the reading I would hand out a picture of an important event that happens in the book. Then once the reading was finished I would read the first page then ask the students what happened next, the student that had the write picture to go with the reading would go and put it up on the board until every picture that was handed out stood in order of the book on the board.
