This book tells the story of a girl named Ginny in kindergarten who struggles with double vision. It's a good choice for young children, especially those in pre-K through second grade. It helps them understand that everyone sees things differently and shows how Ginny feels about her vision.

I cannot read a book about union organizing without crying and this one is no different. While reading to my kids I was a little concerned about the violence this family was experiencing: a mom and her small children hide under a bed while corporate hired thugs rain bullets into their home. I realized though, since no one is hurt, this may be a great way to discuss the truth of gun violence, the risks people are willing to take to defend their families and co-workers and friends.

This is a well-written, uplifting story. A third-grade girl and her mom have a house built for them by their church and community. The girl, Sharonda, tells the story from her perspective with enthusiasm. I like this book, but I don't love it because it has no context. Young readers will want to know why Sharonda and her mom didn't have their own house in the first place, or why people are building a house for them, but this story doesn't go there. It's primarily about the excitement of watching the house get built by their kind, generous community.

At the end, we get a note from the author indicating that this story came from a Women's Build project, which is cool, but I kind of wanted more. The illustrations are realistic and arty, sort of Pinkney-esque.
