My Second Grader is reading "Just Mabel" in school. The book is perfect for a beginning reader- simple, but with a sprinkling of words that challenge. Attractive illustrations that engage, and refuse to let the attention flag.
Mabel is the friend I wished I had in school- smart and loyal, with just the right amount of self doubt. She stands upto bullies, and stands by her friends. She learns to love herself, and isn’t scared to be different.
"Just Mabel” is an appropriate book, but I am still disappointed- couldn’t the school have chosen a similar book set in India?
A drabble is a story told in exactly 100 words.
