Becoming Naomi Leon by Pam Munoz Ryan
Becoming Naomi Leon

batlady, October 10, 2006

Many children in our world today are facing similiar difficulties like Naomi and Owen's situation. Living in a non-traditional family, and having to understand that one's biological parent(s) haven't made the best choices are a strong reality for many children. Because of this, children who reads this story will find a strong character to identify with. Just as Naomi discovers her voice by the end of the story, young readers can discover their strength and voice through her. The other themes of discovering one's talents, being accepting of others, self-determination, and taking pride in one's family heritage are all needed life lessons for today's students.
