This is a wonderful book that I shared with my 5th grade students. It was great to see them realize that not everyone has a nice warm bed or meals that were hot and delicious. It's an excellent way to build background knowledge about different lifestyles. I love to use this book and have the students write a new ending to this book. They love it!
