Title: Amazing Grace

Critique & Text-to-Self

I think this book is a great resource to use to help build a child’s self-concept and self-esteem. Most children can relate to Grace and have felt like they have been judged because of their race, gender or even social status. When I read this book it reminded me of my first organized sports experience and a boy told me I could not play basketball as well as the others in my class so I joined the boy basketball league to prove him wrong. I think this book teaches a wonderful lesson in self-awareness and being confident in who you are. I plan on using it in my class in the upcoming weeks. I think it will be a great motivator before the STAAR test.
