Gifted storyteller Patricia Polacco tells of the sweetness of books and reading and of young Tricia's frustration with school and learning. Happily, a new year and a new teacher bring lasting change to Tricia's life. Kate Forbes narrates quietly but firmly, letting the heart-wrenching story speak for itself. As Tricia is teased repeatedly by her classmates, Forbes conveys tension through a tightened voice. As Mr. Falker guides Tricia's increasing skill in reading and growing pride in herself, Forbes's rich voice lets tenderness permeate. Let every child know this story by heart!
