Grace was one of my favorite characters in children's books when I was growing up and it's encouraging to know that many students still love her just as much as I did. In this book, Grace sets a standard and sets out to do all things that she sets her mind to. This is an extremely inspirational book. I would do an author study with my students on Mary Hoffman and the books she writes. It would be interesting to see students break down her style and see what they get out of it.
