Hidden Girl #BookADay

IMG_1285I have been trying to beef up my nonfiction offerings for my students and anything that discusses social issues is a sure winner in my classroom.  Hidden Girl:  The True Story of a Modern-Day Child Slave is a book my students need to read.  While tough to get through, after all, Shyima was only 8 when she was sold into slavery in Egypt, I think it would be an incredible discussion starter for my students as far as the privilege we have in our school and in our lives.  In fact, this book would be a great book club book because I immediately wanted to discuss it with my husband.  Now all I have to do is get more copies of it.  Thank you Simon and Schuster for sending me this one!
