Reading The Thing About Georgie by Lisa Graff gave me a new perspective on life. I could easily relate to Georgie and the many struggles he has to overcome. I think his worries about his height and the things he couldn’t do were holding him back. We all do that sometimes. We focus so much on what we can’t do and forget to focus on what we can do. I learned a lot from reading this book and I am so glad I picked it up. Georgie is a funny kid who gets mad, jealous, and hurt- just like all of us. I would recommend this book to anyone in 3rd grade and up. A great book for kids to read with an adult! If you know someone who is different in some way, then this is the perfect book for you to read. You won’t regret looking at the world from Georgie’s point of view and I bet you will start to see things differently once you crack open this book. ( )

This book is about Georgie who has dwarfism and has to overcome challenges in his life that most other kids his age do not. He faces the constant fear of not being enough or good enough for the people around him, and this shows throughout the book ranging from the new baby in his family to his dog walking business with his friends. This would be a good book to show kids in the class to bring some light to a disability that they might not experience in everyday life, it gets them out of their bubbles and allows them to see things from a different perspective. Because I think this book is a great tool to use to bring some diversity into the classroom and because the story is entertaining and I believe would capture the minds of children, I gave this book 4 1/2 stars.

I can't say enough about this book! I love this author and the way she captures the feelings of the characters. Georgie is a dwarf and he is in fourth grade. He battles many things in his life. Bullies, keeping friends, a new baby on the way! You will fall in love with him and root for him with every page you turn! A quick easy read... Around level R. ( )

The thing about this book is that it was written before Wonder, by ( )

The thing about Georgie is that he is short...really short...dwarf short, but he doesn't want that to be the only thing that defines who he is. As things change around him: his parents expecting a baby, his best friend no longer his best friend, and a new (but not-so-nice) partner in class, Georgie must learn to look past his limitations so that others can, too.

I wasn't a fan of this book. Although the characters and problems were spot on for that age group, I felt like Georgie's height was too big of a factor and made it less accessible to the average Joe who wasn't happy with himself. So much of what Georgie was limited by was actually because he was physically limited. A lot of time pre-teens who struggle with accepting themselves struggle with more mental/emotional limitations vs. physical ones. ( )
