I DON’T TALK FUNNY, I STUTTER by: Andre L. Sharp Illustrated by: Ivy Marie Apa

 Andy is excited about moving into his new neighborhood and meeting new friends, but he is also a little nervous because he stutters. Andy soon meets Alex. Will Alex accept Andy’s stutter? I thought this book was great for teaching kids about not teasing kids with a stutter and making kids with a stutter feel accepted because we are all different and that’s what make us special. Andre told me that he based the characters on him and his son and that the reason he wrote this book was because he was teased in school because of his stutter and he didn’t want other children to go through that. I Don’t Talk Funny, I Stutter gets 5 out of 5 shields.

    I enjoyed visiting the book fair with you. It was very exciting listening to the authors reactions when they found out you reviewed books. This book review will always be special to me because we found this great story together.

    One of my special days!

    Thank you,


    • I loved going to the book fair too! That review is special to me too! Thanks for stopping by, Dad!
