My Nomination for Olivia's Award

Level: Late Early/Early transitional

Genre: Picture book (illustrated and written by children)

Curricular Use: Independent reading

Topics: Parent with cancer. Family sticking together in hard times as well as good times

Social: Neighbors helping when a family in the neighborhood is going through tough times, people sticking together and caring for one another, the value of family

Literary Elements: Songs, kid language and voice (because it was written by children for children)

Strong connection between the pictures and the text (the pictures really reflect the story through a child's point of view, the picture really show the reader how cancer is viewed through the eyes of a child)
