it was amazing
bookshelves: 2011, lurved

I like this book. I've taught kindergarten and I'm amazed at how believable Jack is as a character and a narrator. The combination of intellect and high vocabulary with his imagination and play work perfectly together. His reactions and responses to the events in his life are so well told that I empathize with him entirely. I sometimes had to step back and realize how challenging it would be to try to figure out a child like Jack as an adult because told through his words- his reactions make sense. I'll read this book again for sure.

Sheena Finished already?? I haven't had a chance yet to pick up where we left off!

Leone Yup. I'm going to re-read some parts of it before doing the review though(no spoilers I promise).
