a heart-warming story about a young, rather shy boy named Johnny, who is just a little bit different from his classmates.
John needs some help! What advice would you give him?
In our story, John rarely seems to have much social success in the classroom--- that is, until his teacher introduces a lesson that might, JUST MIGHT, highlight his skills sets. (What are SKILL SETS? Do you know yours? What are YOUR strongest skill sets?)
Do YOU think that in the end of this story Johnny shines and becomes the class star? Yes? No? Why? How?
This educational story is written from the heart by Mim Bizic, of Sewickley, PA, USA.
The tale is beautifully illustrated by Ayesha Deane, a children's illustrator who lives in Bangalore, India.
Just some thoughts playing "WHAT IF?" What if YOU were Johnny? What if you were Johnny's teacher?
What if you wanted to be Johnny's friend, but he wasn't looking for any friends? What could you do to help?
What if you were a book in the Library? Which one would you want to be and why?
Which "What if?" question would YOU use?
Would you like to be a student in this class? Why or why not? What if you really COULD transport yourself to any classroom anywhere in the world. Would you like to have Johnny go with you as a friend? Where would you go? What things could you learn? What ELSE would you do?
