yaccarino-i-am-a-storyThe history of how a story was recorded and passed on changes from the beginning shared around a campfire to living on forever. It is a simple yet a powerful message. The vocabulary to explain such concepts as censored and banned books provides a good discussion. The pictures and message of stories going on is wonderful. Verdict: I plan to read it in my 3rd grade classroom, to teach the importance and power of writing and discuss the aspects of books being censored or banned.
