Just Grace

Charise Mericle Harper’s Just Grace kicks off a fun series full of lists and drawings about school, family, neighbors and cats.  Although she is one of four Graces at school, Just Grace is unique, like a super hero with a just a small superpower called empathy. This leads Grace to do a variety of helpful things, some of which are misinterpreted by her very sad neighbor.

The stand-out feature of Just Grace is its authentic and captivating voice which pulls the reader through themes of friendship and teamwork.  Try a doing a character map with this book.
