The Girl With the Broken Wing Booktalk

  • Grades: 3–5

Hi! I’m Hilary, and I’m here to tell you what happened when I decided to go visit James and Amanda. You see, I was so so bored. We don’t do much of anything where I come from except sing hymns and look for good deeds to do and sometimes dance, but only if it’s quiet music and you don’t move around a lot. I don’t have anyone to play with, cause everyone is lots older than I am, and it’s no fun at all, and that’s just not fair.

I had a wonderful time. I ate chocolate, flew paper airplanes, listened to stories with headphones (I can’t read writing, only music and pictures.), went on a picnic with James and Amanda and their parents, went on a field trip to a cathedral, and even went to school! I’ve never been to school, and I’ve always wanted to go. I even had a part in the school play, and had lots of other great adventures.
