Description

 

Every child has a voice — if we take the time to listen.

 

In this appealing, energetic picture book, two kids with different challenges and strengths find they are just what the other needs to navigate classroom life.

Tyson does everything fast — so fast he often disrupts the class. His teacher is always saying, “Too fast, Tyson!” And often he ends up playing all alone.

Suze, the new girl, is nonverbal with special needs. Sometimes her classmates don’t know what those needs are.

But Tyson understands. Taking the time to interpret her cues, Tyson forms a special friendship with Suze, and teaches his classmates what it means to listen and understand others.

Claudia Dávila’s bright, energetic art captures the joy of moving at your own speed and connecting with a friend who can ride alongside.

Editorial Review

 

Praise for Betting Game:

“A very compelling story with interesting characters that kept this reader wanting to read more. O’Connor deals with topics that would be well worth discussing with almost any teen: the value of team-work; honesty; and ethics. I will certainly include Betting Game in our curriculum resource collection and would recommend it for other school libraries as well. Highly Recommended.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials

Praise for Betting Game:

“O’Connor will keep the game’s fans close with plenty of in-the-know soccer patter, but she will also draw other readers with the story of Jack’s slow absorption into a gambling ring.” — Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Super Red Riding Hood:

“This is a simple but charming twist on a classic tale, with a strong lead character and a happily ever after ending well-suited for a modern audience.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials

Praise for Child Soldier:

“Graphic in format but not detail ...The visual element gives this memoir particular immediacy for audiences who "don't understand what is happening right now, to kids just like them." — Kirkus Reviews
