FrindleThis book was wonderful! Nicholas Allen is a fifth grader who has numerous great ideas to make school more exciting. His newest idea seemed fairly tame, but caused quite an uproar. Inspired by his teacher, Nicholas decides to make up a new word. The consequences are greater than anyone imagined.

While some books make me feel guilty as a teacher (One Child) this book was inspirational. Nicholas’ teacher, Mrs. Granger, challenges her students even when they complain, but is also completely supportive of their efforts. I hope that as a teacher, I can be as influential to my students as Mrs. Granger was to Nicholas.
