Review Where the Steps Were

S Dawn Kayla Jonathan Anthony and Carmen relate the events of their last year together with their teacher Miss D The year is busy as the students each facing a challenge at home prepare to put on a play take field trips to a local farm and do experiments in the science lab They are studying the. While the poems are beautiful I have conflicting opinions about this book It is written for ages 4 8 according to the listing The book is far too advanced for this age group in my mind I am in my 20s and I had a difficult time following the characters stories as there were five main characters and once I learned about a character I had to read four poems and then remember hisher story I felt that the way the poems were set up took away from the intimacy that I felt with each character and it didn t flow well for me I think an older age group could understand the poems but I doubt a child in the 10 12 age group would want to read about third graders as kids often like to read about characters that are eual in age or older
