In this book discussion for kids in grades 1-3 and an accompanying grown-up, we'll read and discuss our book and then play a book-related game or create a craft together.

From author and poet Nikki Grimes comes the story of Gabby, who daydreams to tune out her parents' arguments. When her parents divorce and she begins a new school, daydreaming gets her into trouble. Her mother scolds her for it, her teacher keeps telling her to pay attention, and the other kids tease her, until she finds a friend who also daydreams and her teacher decides to work a daydreaming-writing session into every school day. With a notebook "thick with daydreams," Gabby grows more confident about herself and her future. This verse novel poignantly celebrates the power of writing and the inspiration a good teacher can deliver.
