This was my favorite book to read when I was a young student. This is a great book to talk about differences. I would use my name as an example to use to my students. I would bring in a culture difference lesson with my students have have them learn about different sales of names go with different families. This could also be used for a great anti-bully book and teach the students of out bullying affects students feelings. This would be a great read for Kindegarten to 3rd grade.
