What an important little book this was. In a day and age where young people are stepping into oncoming traffic because they aren’t accepted for who they are and 8-year olds are being belittled for daring to walk the red carpet in a suit rather than a dress, Grayson’s story is one that needs to be told. I encourage parents and children alike to read this story.
I find myself at a loss for words. Thinking too hard about the struggles of young people just makes me sad . . . and it’s a Monday so I’m sad enough in general already ; ) Instead I’ll let Mr. Feeny do the talking . . .
Thank heaven for teachers who overstep their boundaries when parents aren’t willing to deal with hard issues. I’m pretty sure Grayson would agree.
