5th grade book club is reading about another fifth grade class where the kids and teacher are making a difference. Rob Buyea is making his debut with Because of Mr. Terupt. Anyone who loved Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper or Rules by Cynthia Lord will not be disappointed with this touching, book. Told from the point of view from several students in a new young teacher's class, this book makes one feel a part of the close-knit group.
Students are "play acting" at book club and reading the parts of the book as if in a play. Many students read the book in a weekend after they heard the title before book club even started it...it's that great a book!!!
