I Will Never Get a Star on Mrs. Benson’s Blackboard

I Will Never Get a Star on Mrs. Benson's BlackboardBy Jennifer Mann

When I read the publisher’s synopsis of the book I had high expectations for the book. I feel that the book met my expectations. This book is about a girl who is creative, but also easily distracted. She tries to do her best, but sometimes gets distracted or does things wrong. She really wants to earn a star on the board, but is worried that she won’t get one because she is not as good at things as other students. This book gives you the opportunity to discuss how each person has different strengths. This is a great book for a variety of ages.

    I hadn’t heard of this book until I saw your review. I think many classroom and children could benefit from this point of view. Thanks for sharing.
