EDGAR THE EAGLE IN DO YOUR BEST by: Sheila Hairston illustrated by: J. Cecil Anderson

 Edgar is so excited about the eagle flying show. He practices and practices until one day he breaks his wing! How will he ever be able to compete? This book was good for teaching people about not giving up and trying your hardest. I got to meet the illustrator and he signed a copy of the book for me. Their are some cool facts about eagles inside. Edgar the Eagle gets 4 out of 5 shields. This book really was geared toward younger  readers, but the message was good for everyone.

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.
