Walk Two Moons - Sharon Creech

This book has been an absolute favorite of mine for over ten years! The story of a young girl as she travels with her grandparents to visit her mother may sound less than exciting, but this book will completely draw you in from the very first chapter and you will want to read it again and again once you've finished it! "Walk Two Moons" will break your heart, make you smile, make you feel connected to the main character, and will change the way you think about your family and what it means to truly love someone. I think this would be an amazing book to read in a whole group setting for a fifth grade classroom. Students could make predictions about the story, write about how they connect to the story personally, and discuss how they would change the ending and why they would do so. This is a great read and I hope everyone has a chance to read it at one point in their life!
