Amazing Grace
Amazing Grace - Mary Hoffman,Caroline Binch

Amazing Grace is on a 3.3 accelerated reading level (3rd grade, 3rd month reading level). This story is about a young African American girl who loves to read and act out stories. Grace is presented with an opportunity to play a role in her school’s play. Grace knows exactly which part she wants to play. Students will read about how Grace also loved to make up stories in her head. Students can create their own stories within groups and act them out for the class.

Amazing Grace, Amazing Book!
Amazing Grace - Mary Hoffman,Caroline Binch

Amazing Grace is a beautiful story written on a DRA reading level of 20. Teachers of all elementary levels could use this book in their classroom though. This story is so sweet. Through the main character, students can learn that they are capable of doing anything that they set their minds to. This book is an encouragement to its audience, and it is very inspirational.

Grace is simply Amazing! She has creativity and determination to get through anything life throws her way! Grace imagines herself as many things that she sees in her life and when her school puts on the play "Peter Pan" she wants to be Peter. Her classmates tell her she could never be Peter because she is a girl but int he end she gets her dream role of Peter. I would use this book for a writing activity and have students create a newspaper article about grace complete with headline, illustration, and article. This would be a great book to accompany a lesson on the text feature in nonfiction text (such as the newspaper article they are going to write) so they are able to take what they have learned and put it into their writing in a fun way with the context of this book.

Brief Review:

Amazing Grace is about a young girl who loved reading and pretending to be in the books she reads as the best part of the book. But when she was told she couldn’t be a character in the story she was sad, but her grandmother took her to a performance that the women chosen for the part was not the typical person for the part, which taught her no matter what if you try hard you can achieve anything.

Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:

Amazing Grace could be used in the classroom to show case the students’ imagination. The teacher could choose a book for the class to act out and play the parts as a class and maybe even invite the parents.

Reading Level & Leveling System:

Direct Reading Assessment

20

Pre-K to Fifth

Book Rating:

I would rate this book a 5 because it shows imagination and believing in yourself. This is interesting and a fun way for students to read.

Amazing Grace is a book about a little girl who loves stories. She is always listening and acting out stories. The text displays how Grace overcomes the obstacle of wanting to play peter pan's role in a play. She knows exactly who she wants to be and shows everyone else how confident, unique and beautiful she is. This text could be used in a prek-5th grade classroom to start a discussion on what makes all of us unique and beautiful. The students could even send each other letters and tell friends what makes them beautiful and unique. This book could also lead to a discussion on what students wants to be when they grow up.
