Amazing Grace - Mary Hoffman, Caroline Binch

Amazing Grace, written by Mary Hoffman, is about a little girl named Grace who loves stories. She loves to act out stories of all kinds, whether it is being Joan of Arc, a pirate, or Mowgli. This little girl believes that she can do it all, and proves to everyone that she can be/do whatever she sets her mind (and imagination) to. This book would be a great book to not only read to help encourage children that they can be/do anything they set their mind to, but it also could be a great book to incorporate into black history month lessons. This book can show ALL children that they can do anything they want to do no matter their circumstances or backgrounds. I would love to use this book in a black history month lesson, and have them write everything that they can do and want to do just like Grace does. I would say that this could be for grades first through third.
