Miss Little's Gift by Douglas Wood
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The true-life tale of a teacher who offered the gift of reading.Douglas is the youngest, smallest, and newest student in his class. He doesn't like reading; he doesn't like sitting still. And he doesn't like Miss Little, especially when she makes him stay after class day after day, to help him with his reading. Luckily Douglas likes the pictures in the book Miss Little has chosen for him, pictures of ocean and trees and fish that remind him of the lake his family goes to every summer. It isn't too long before he begins to love the words too; words that conjure far-off worlds, excite his imagination, and will eventually inspire him to become a writer himself...
