I love this growing text set on homelessness. I’ll have to listen back to previous episodes to see what different perspectives/positions regarding the issue are highlighted through each book.

Thanks Andrea and Mark

Fantastic book. The students in my classroom were hightly engaged in many activities that required them to think critically and to use empathy and to realize that a small child CAN change the life of another human being. Sue Ferreira
