    12. I quite enjoyed this simple tale I had pegged this title as the Blue Spruce nominee that I would like the least It is actually one of my favorites for the 2016 selections Simple and short, it show kindness, joy and cooperation Disappointment is dealt with by the characters without and whining or jealous She is genuinely happy for her friends and thrilled to help them Her friends also help her without the need for negotiation or payback It is refreshing and hopeful Worth the read

    15. Read aloud 12 times to students from JK 6 Blue Spruce nominee 2016 The artwork is glorious and is the reason this story merits the star rating that it does This is a social justice story about access to transportation in Tanzania I have nothing against social justice indeed, I m certain that s exactly why they keep nominating Alma Fullerton It s just not a terribly engaging story The Author Notes at the back of the book make a far interesting story.
