Gardner Middle School has chosen our book for this year’s Summer reading. A Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt has been selected and purchased for all incoming 5th, 6th and 7th grade students. Books and additional information are being shared with students this week. If your student is remote, you should make arrangements to come in and pick up a copy of the book.
Ally has been smart enough to fool a lot of smart people. Every time she lands in a new school, she is able to hide her inability to read by creating clever yet disruptive distractions. She is afraid to ask for help; after all, how can you cure dumb? However, her newest teacher Mr. Daniels sees the bright, creative kid underneath the trouble maker. With his help, Ally learns not to be so hard on herself and that dyslexia is nothing to be ashamed of. As her confidence grows, Ally feels free to be herself and the world starts opening up with possibilities. She discovers that there’s a lot more to her—and to everyone—than a label, and that great minds don’t always think alike.
