Tuesdays Treasures. I started these posts as a way of sharing great books in honour of my friend in New Zealand who would arrive with the treasures she had unearthed at her weekly trip to the library!
There are so many wonderful books out there hiding on shelves so I invite you to blog about a book on your shelf, one you're reading or one you found at the library and add your post to Learning All the Time Favourite Resource Link Up.
This week ...
Follow My Leader
Reading level: Ages 5 and up
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Puffin (December 1, 1994)
Book Description: After Jimmy is blinded in an accident with a firecracker, he has to relearn all the things he used to know. With the help of a determined therapist, he learns to read Braille and to use a cane. Then he's given the chance to have a guide dog. Learning to work with Leader is not easy, but Jimmy tries harder than he ever has before.
This is one of those books that I am looking forward to re reading and sharing with Sir N. It's a story revealing the consequences of our actions at the same time giving us a hope for the future. I love the way his heart changes and the way he grows as a character in the story. We walk with Jimmy as he learns to forgive and it takes the reader on a journey as to what it would be like to be blind.
