Nickole Castillo | 39 comments This is such a great book for my classroom! I love the perspective in which this story is told. I would not use this book for historical purposes in the younger grades, however I would use this book to teach bravery, friendship, and how stories were passed down before the story was made into a book. The illustrations were very well done throughout this book. I will definitely buy this book.

Great points Nickole! Patricia can tell a story, can't she!!! Pink and Say is another nice example of a "picture book" for older students.

"Master Aylee showed him how paper talks. Show him, Pink." I love that!!!

Such a great way to share the legacy of Pinkus Aylee!

The teaching points you identified are great, and tie in so perfectly with this book!

Thanks! I loved this quote as well! It is so powerful and shows how important literature is! (:
