In How Sunny Sees It: A Journey to Reading Bravely, by Lesley D. Nurse, the author shows how the main character, Sunny, a young child, would rather play than study. Nurse shows how some children can be mean and taunt a fellow child, making the child vulnerable and even more obstinate. Sometimes, as the author shows, it takes a special teacher to place students on the right path.
After reading this book by Lesley D. Nurse, I thought about how this book would be good to be read by children with good and bad study skills. I know how cruel some kids can be and how innocent some kids can be. I think every student should have an understanding teacher. So, as Nurse shows, Sunny’s teacher brought together both sides of the spectrum. Sunny’s character was smart. She simply needed some understanding, motivation and needed to feel important. Once the other students felt important in their role of the situation, everything worked out.
Child bullying is a hot topic these days. The earlier children are taught to be understanding of others, the better. Again, I suggest this book to any student. The book took even me down the memory lane of my own elementary school days. I was often teased and teachers were always there for me. I was intelligent back then for my age, and fellow students just did not understand. I think Nurse’s book should be read by a kindergarten or first-grade teacher to the class to get understanding instilled the earlier the better.
