Boundless Grace - Mary Hoffman

This is a sequel to Amazing Grace. In this story, Grace receives plane tickets to Africa where her is located. Grace realizes that although she loves the idea of having a family where her mother and father are in one place, she likes the way things are. This would be another great story to touch on family units and dynamics.

This story continues the story of Grace, from Amazing Grace. This one tells the story of her and her journey to see her father. As well as, her coming to terms that she doesn't have the same type of family as everyone else. We used this in my CT's class to infer about how Grace was feeling throughout the book. I think we could also use this to explain to the children that not everyone has the "normal" family as Grace has put it. But that doesn't mean that their family is less than others.

My first day of placement this semester, my cooperating teacher used this book in her whole group lesson. The book is about a girl named Grace and Grace lives with her mom and grandmother. Once day, Grace sees a family that has a mom, child, and a father. Grace then begins to think that her family is incomplete. It Grace traveling to where her father lives and to see that there is a variety of different families and that who she lives with, s her complete family. She ends up to know that just because her father does not live with her and she does not live with him, its OK. I would use this book in two different ways. I would first teach the students how to inference. The other thing I would teach the students is just because you mom or dad does not live you, doesn't mean your family is incomplete. Your family is anyone you care about whether they do or do not live with you. I think this book would be good in grades 3 -4. The actual level of the book is  4.1.

This book is just great!  I recently used it in a lesson.  We discussed inferences and used the beautiful illustrations to talk about how we can infer the characters' feelings based on facial expressions and such.  Also we discussed the truth that "families are what you make them," as this is frequently said in the story.  The grade level for this story is a 4.1, but we used it in my 3rd grade classroom and it worked very well.  The students learned a great lesson on not comparing your family to others'.

This was a really good book.  I recommend this book for 1st-5th grade, with the older children answering more complex questions about the message of the book.  I think that this could be used in many ways in the classroom. One way I have used it with my students was to teach that there are many different types of families around the world.
