Crenshaw by Katherine Applegate
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Who says that an imaginary friend is not real?
I am sure they are the same as say there is not now, nor never was a Santa Claus. No faeries, no dragons, elves or wizards. That good, hard working people never lose their homes. That smart children who are obedient and helpful will never have to sleep in a van. Whoever they are have no clue.
23310699-crenshaw by Katherine Applegate is a must read for every child, no matter their age.
"Sometimes adults make mistakes..." especially when they do not communicate with their children. Kids are pretty smart.
I was moved emotionally by this story, I laughed and cried, and then smiled.
Families who have experienced the rough patch of homelessness, or living in poverty housing will be served by sharing this with their children. Anyone compassionate for those who fall on hard times, will be served by reading "Crenshaw."
It is available in the children's department of our Library.
