    PDF/EPUB teachenglishthailand.co.uk ¶ Window Boy ePUB º window ebok, Window Boy MOBILoved this bookso much so that I went to Bluewillow Bookshop and bought another copy to send to my 8 and 11 year old nieces in Seattle Notice I wasn't willing to give up my own copyAndrea White writes with ease making it an enjoyable read Though main character Sam has physical limitations that doesn't mean he has to be limited in all ways He learns through his love of Winston Churchill that all things are possible This book also reminded me of the strides we've tried to make in our public schools to be inclusive of all studentsdo we still have a ways to go? Yesbut let's hope we are continually moving towards excellence in education

    PDF/EPUB teachenglishthailand.co.uk ¶ Window Boy ePUB º window ebok, Window Boy MOBIAll around this was a very interesting read I'm glad I read this book which tells of one's boy's struggle to live in a world that's not really made for him Wheelchair bound Sam has a mind that works just fine but his cerebral palsy limits what he can physically do The book takes place in 1968 well before the ADA act of 1990 when people who live with disabilities aren't provided with the same access to everyday experiences Sam has never been to school and when he finally arrives in his 6th grade class no one knows what to do or how to act Sam's story is an important perspective for those able bodied who have never experienced the isolation that comes with physical disabilities It's 1968 and some of the language and situations may give a slight pause but I'd say as with most historical fiction is it used in the context of the time for which it was written It's not an easy read and the characters have many layers as do most human relationships The bonus material a

    PDF/EPUB teachenglishthailand.co.uk ¶ Window Boy ePUB º window ebok, Window Boy MOBIProbably best for gr 5 8 I did not enjoy this as much as the author's Surviving Antarctica but it is a good story from the point of view of a 6th grade boy who is physically disabled and has difficulty speaking In the 1960's when this story is set disabled children often did not attend school and Sam's first experiences with school are met with limited expectations from school personnel and his fellow students Thanks in part to the persistence of his caretaker Mrs Perkins he is able to be seen for who he is until circumstances land him in an institution There is a happy ending though with an afterword that describes what happened to the characters

    PDF/EPUB teachenglishthailand.co.uk ¶ Window Boy ePUB º window ebok, Window Boy MOBIi went into this book a little sceptical at first but was plesently suprised not only was the story told in a feasable way but you really got to understand the main character having a handicapped brother myself i understand how he thinks and i know that he has a brain that is anything but dead and void of activity in this book you see that while the main character does get frustrated by his situation you can see how he doesnt let it define or limit him he knows what he wants and he's going to get it this book is a journey that will not only help you to understand the disabled but it also opens your eyes to the predjudice that still exists towards the disabled
