John’s Turn

Written by Mac Barnett, Illustrated by Kate Berube

John’s Turn is illustrated with soft and warm hues that helps depict the moving story in this book. John is nervous when it is his turn to share something at his school’s Friday assembly. Amidst not-so-kind comments by his classmates, he bravely shares his love of dance. The positive message of courage and acceptance makes this book really special. By the end of the book, I was cheering and clapping for John! This would be a great read aloud with a meaningful follow-up discussion.
