This year we are encouraging all the 4th graders in one city (Grand Rapids) to read one book (Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea). Even if you aren’t a 4th grader, we’ll let you read the book.
In this book, seven fifth-graders at Snow Hill School in Connecticut relate how their lives are changed for the better by “rookie teacher” Mr. Terupt. There’s an “accident” that happens midway through the story-how do these kids handle the difficulties of every day life, with this additional stress?
After reading the book, would you like to meet the author and tell him what you think of the book?
You can meet the author, Rob Buyea on March 10 at Pooh’s Corner Bookstore. This book signing is free and open to the public.
Rob Buyea will also be visiting 5 lucky schools on either Monday, March 10 or Tuesday, March 11. Teachers can enter to win an author visit.
