The Little Linebacker Book Tour Review

Being a First Grade teacher means I'm always on the lookout for new books.  I especially love books that help my students with things they might be going through and this one, The Little Linebacker, fit the bill perfectly.  I enjoyed the message of Never Give UP and the wonderful encouragement of the characters in the book.  When things look hard or impossible keep going because hard work pays off.

I asked my students, after I had read the book to them, if they could name some things that were hard for them but they kept going to learn or do.  They all said tying shoes and this is still a struggle for some of my sweeties.  Learning a new game and reading were other answers.  They all agreed it was important to not give up and to continue to practice and work hard to learn all of these.

The message in this book was wonderful for ending the school year.  Some students are ready to Give Up before the school year ends.  This story helped them to keep going through the end.  I plan on using this story to start off my school year next year and I can see it would be great to reread around the middle and end of the year too.
