This would be a good book for intermediate readers
This book is about an array of different students with a mix of different disabilities and home experiences
This would be a good read aloud book to spark up conversation, but should be read at older grade levels as there are heavy topics within the story.

This book is a memoir about a girls experience in a special education class. The main character struggles as she is bullied in the beginning of the book, but find true friendship with her peers in the special education class. This book was incredibly touching and it would be very valuable in the classroom to teach kindness and friendship to students!

Elementary and early middle school, children. Young girl with struggles in schools gets sent to be in the classroom that is only for kids who struggle in school, she gets made fun of for this but ends up making the bestest friends ever in this class and learning so much about friendship and kindness.
Great book for inclusion.

I think this book would be good for any age category because of the message. The main girl was put into a class with other students who had learning disabilities or other disabilities and they were nicknamed by students outside of the class as the junkyard.

This book is about a class that is full of students with learning disabilities and follows their journey of learning about the world and each other, as they build a model airplane. I think this would be a good book to foster inclusion in your classroom and would work the best in grade school settings.
