Grade Level: 4th-8th
Summary: This book is all about imagination! Two friends come together to build a magical kingdom, until something tragic happens. However, this devastation is an impetus for Jess' understanding of strength and courage.
Idea: I would use this book for the purpose of building character. I would allow for my students to come up with their own magical kingdom (class-wide). They would be required to build a script, then act it out. It would be a made from scratch. It would be an original readers' theater!
