My favorite part of this book is when Mr. Falker helps Patricia read. I can relate to Patricia because I also have difficulty reading. I love the illustrations in the book they are so vivid. My favorite picture is the grandma and Patricia on the grass. I like this part because the grandma says, “We will all eventually let go of the grass and go where the stars are”. And the next day the grandma lets go of the grass and lifts to heaven. This is so sweet and sad at the same time. It reminds me of my grandma lifting off the grass.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes stories that are true and about somebody’s life. Patricia Polacco said this “I saw Mr. Falker some thirty years later at a wedding I walked up to him and introduced myself. At first he had difficulty placing me then I told him, who I was and how he has changed my life so many years ago.” Anyone can relate to Patricia Polacco books because they are about growing up.
