The Ordinary Acrobat: A Journey into the Wondrous World of the Circus, Past and Present / Duncan Wall. The extraordinary story of a young man’s plunge into the unique and wonderful world of the circus—taking readers deep into circus history and its renaissance as a contemporary art form, and behind the (tented) walls of France’s most prestigious circus school.
The Feelings Book (Revised): The Care and Keeping of Your Emotions/Dr. Lynda Madison. Another great American Girl series book about all the crazy things happening in middle school. Also super helpful for parents in talking with their middle grade girls. Try it in 5th grade and re-visit it. Greta b / April 2014
