    6. I would not use this book for my class, so I will write the book talk for the pre K 2 gr.Have you ever wished you could do something special Something that would make your friends and teachers clap and cheer How many of you have not been able to do something that one of your friends could do like a cartwheel or ride a two wheeler or read a book by yourself How did that make you feel Well Ling Sung feels the exact same way, until he discovers something he can do that is totally clever Teachers Th [...]


    7. Basically, this is a story that every kid can relate to Everyone has a unique talent for or ability to do something In this case Ling Sung improvises a pair of chopsticks from the handles of two paintbrushes and impresses his classmates, who then try to imitate him What gave me the heebie jeebies a little was the thought of using unsanitized paintbrush handles that everyone s grubby hands have touched to put food into your mouth And the teacher was doing it too If only there had been a picture o [...]


    8. Cleversticks by Bernard Ashley, illustrated by Derek Brazell publ in 1992 Great for preschool and up Special little book that I d heard about multiple times over the past few years, had to finally pick it up to read Special little book about a little boy who feels quite left out at his school because many of his classmates are recognized for their special abilities like tying shoes and writing their name until he does something so natural to him that he doesn t realize it is special.


    9. I really enjoyed reading this book The theme is everyone is good at something A little boy just started Kindergarten and he is feeling left out because everyone knows how to do certain things and the teacher is complimenting them on what they can do He finally does something that the other kids can t do and the teacher compliments him on it and he teaches the rest of the class how to do it Good book, you should read it.


    10. A young Chinese boy has a frustrating experience going to school for the first time He s not clever in any of the ways the other kids are writing ins name, tying his shoes, etc But when he picks up two paintbrushes and uses them like chopsticks, he finally has a tLent everyone can admire Easy reader in picture book format.


    11. about a young Chinese boy who doesn t like school because he doesn t fit in and can t do things others his age canLing Sung ends up teaching the class how to use chopsticks and everyone is amazed at what he can do


    12. Great read for students of all elementary school grade levels This can lead into some great discussion about how everyone has their own special talents as well as weaknesses This is also good for having students encourage and point out strengths of other students.


    13. This is the story of a little Asian boy who thinks that everyone at his school has some better talent than he does When Ling realizes that people admire his use of chopsticks, he becomes confident in himself I would recommend this book for k through 2nd.



    14. Great story about a child that feels like he doesn t have any special talents, until he realizes otherwise I would use this story to discuss culture in the classroom.
