Hernandez, C.
A novel that follows the journeys of three children who live in a low-income neighbourhood in Canada and attend a morning literacy program that provides free food, this book gives insight into the lives of people who struggle to succeed in this country. The children and their families navigate poverty, mental health issues, and complex learning needs. Suitable in a senior secondary classroom, this novel exemplifies Canadian and urban literature and offers many opportunities for critical thinking, visualizing, and communicating points of view. Extension activities may include a deeper look into the children’s wellbeing and issues of poverty, inviting students to analyze and discuss the families’ needs and the government services that may be required to support low-income families.
