Book Status: Available September 3
I saw on Twitter about a very outdated reading list for kids. I bet Little Women is a book recommended but I don’t get it. Lucky me I got to read MORE TO THE STORY first!! It is a modern retelling of the same story and so much easier for a kid to get.
The characters are dealing current issues and represent the diversity of schools. Plus the book touches on a big issue at schools called “microaggression”. As a kid, let me tell ya this is an issue in the middle grades.
Middle grade teachers and librarians should plan to add this book to their library.
Heck this would be a fantastic way to start a new TV show for kids. I mean they are rebooting everything so why no Little Women but from Hena Khan perspective. Can you imagine how much kids could learn about Muslim culture???
