This book was intended for third graders. The children can relate to the characters in the book. Gordie feels like he has no talent. Another great transition book.

A new kid comes to the school and Gordie is feeling not only left out, but like he has no talent or nothing special about him at all. This book comes up with an interesting solution and faces a common problem every kid experiences at some point in their life. A pretty solid read.
This book is for any child that feels they are left out or are not good at anything. Gordie's school is having a talent show and he thinks he has zero talents so he comes up with one with the help of his dog Scratch. Great third grader book.Should be a simple read for third graders.
