  • I CHOSE THIS BOOK BECAUSE…
    It was a short book
    It had a sad beginning but in the end … (not going to tell you the end)
    I felt like crying after I read the book
  • MY FAVORITE QUOTE
    • (Page number) 14
    • Quote: “ You’re not alone. We’re here too.“
  • Reading strategies
    Text to world
    I checked Google maps so I can find out if San Pablo, Guatemala is a real place and the way the author described it.
    Text to self
    This reminded me about the street children that were abandoned by their parents.
  • How do I relate this to our unit…
    • There’s a Cause & Effect. The cause was when Juan’s mother fell in love and the effect was when Juan was kicked out of the house.
    • LESSON : Importance of standing up for one’s self
