Rukhsana rocks! but for more than one reason. Her blog The Company we keep..., features a video clip where the author explains a very original way to engage kids in a conversation about the Big Red Lollipop.
The thing is, for years before she got published, Rukhsana told the story of the Big Red Lollipop from HER perspective (that of the naughty little sister in the book, as told in this author's clip on Youtube).
When her story was about to get published, her editor suggested she rewrites the story from HER BIG SISTER's perspective (the one presented in the book).
Can you think of a better way to talk about perspectives with your students?
