I really like this book. I would read this book to my students because it talks about where people go when they die, but does not impose one "main" belief on the students. This way students religious beliefs are not questioned if they do not believe ...more

I did not like this book as much as the other books I read for my themed text set. I think this is a good option for younger students to read if a student has a grandma die.

This is a great science fiction book and the second book in the series. I would use this book to talk about robots and how they are increasing in the factory and surgeries today. Its a great series to start your students with.
