Book Review - John's Turn

John's Turn

About the Book
In John's Turn E. B. White Read-Aloud winner Mac Barnett celebrates individuality in a story told with tenderness and subtlety. It’s John’s big day at school today—a performance for Sharing Gifts time. His bag is carefully packed and prepared, his classmates are ready, and the curtain is waiting to open. John is nervous, looking out at all the other children staring back at him. But he takes a big breath and begins. Mac Barnett’s compassionate text and Kate Berube’s understated and expressive art tell the story of a kid who finds the courage to show others his talent for dancing.

My Take on the Book
This is a wonderful book that allows you to see the importance if sharing your gifts no matter what, but also shares a story of courage that will inspire other children too. The book also opens up dialogue for kids to be able to see the importance of acceptance, kindness and more. Get ready for an emotional ride as you read this amazing book!
