This wonderful book is about a girl named Ally who has been crafty enough to fool many smart people. Every time she lands in a new school, she is able to hide her inability to read by creating clever yet disruptive distractions. She is horrified to ask for help; after all, how can you cure dumb? However, her newest teacher Mr. Daniels sees the bright, creative kid underneath the trouble maker. With his help, Ally learns not to be so hard on herself and that dyslexia is nothing to be ashamed of. This is an example of character vs. self, because Ally is fighting with her dyslexia. As her confidence grows, Ally feels free to be herself and the world starts opening up with possibilities. Lynda Mullaly Hunt’s Fish in a Tree is a fictitious novel about three kids: Ally, Keisha, and Albert, who “set the world on fire” as they overcome challenges and conflicts. This is what many of my students deal with on a daily basis and I feel the connection they will have for this book is HUGE. We will read it together as a class and complete many fun and engaging projects. I hope that many will turn around to LOVE reading.
