Thursdays with Ting: Fish in a Tree {Lynda Mullaly Hunt}

fish in a tree lynda mullaly hunt
Ally has been smart enough to fool a lot of smart people. Every time she lands in a new school, she is able to hide her inability to read by creating clever yet disruptive distractions. She is afraid to ask for help; after all, how can you cure dumb? However, her newest teacher Mr. Daniels sees the bright, creative kid underneath the trouble maker. With his help, Ally learns not to be so hard on herself and that dyslexia is nothing to be ashamed of. As her confidence grows, Ally feels free to be herself and the world starts opening up with possibilities. She discovers that there’s a lot more to her—and to everyone—than a label, and that great minds don’t always think alike.
Ting's Thoughts:
I think Fish in a Tree is a great book. I love all the characters, especially Mr. Daniels. He was super cool and nice to Ally. I liked reading about Ally making mistakes and then correcting them.

I also like how in the end she made new friends who were loyal and kind. Thank you, Lynda Mullaly Hunt, for writing this wonderful book to read.
