The Girl With The Broken Wing

The Girl With The Broken Wing - Heather Dyer I thought this would be perfect for a 4th grader but I think it is for a younger audience. Second grade seems about perfect.

Hillary, the angel, may seem angelic but she is far from. She is MISCHIEF. James' and Amanda's reactions are priceless. So it got a few laughs from me. That experiences in this book kept a smile on my face throughout nearly the entire story. Hillary is a ball of energy to delight and exasperate these kids. I cannot believe what she does to James at the pageant yet I love when she takes them flying.

The story and words are so simple it seems geared toward 1-2 graders but the length and depth seem more toward older kids so I felt very conflicted on which kid in the family to give this to.
