In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

 The Wild Book by Margarita Engle – Novel in Verse, Historical Fiction, 4th grade and up – kidnapping, poaching, dyslexia, and poetry, gorgeous combination. I love seeing how Margarita Engle makes a story come to life on the pages of a book. She amazes me. This book was absolutely beautiful, from watching a large family work to get along and stay together. I personally grew up with dyslexia, not with reading but instead with my writing and spelling… reading this book was such a touching experience to watch how the main character Fefa struggles with “word-blindness”/dyslexia and how with patience, persistence, and poetry, Fefa is able to help herself and be a hero to her family. Beautiful. I additionally found this book special since Margarita Engle brought her grandmother’s childhood to life.

Goodreads Summary: “Fefa struggles with words. She has word blindness, or dyslexia, and the doctor says she will never read or write. Every time she tries, the letters jumble and spill off the page, leaping and hopping away like bullfrogs. How will she ever understand them? But her mother has an idea. She gives Fefa a blank book filled with clean white pages. “Think of it as a garden,” she says. Soon Fefa starts to sprinkle words across the pages of her wild book. She lets her words sprout like seedlings, shaky at first, then growing stronger and surer with each new day. And when her family is threatened, it is what Fefa has learned from her wild book that saves them.”
