    I loved this book when I read it in school! I can't remember what grade I was in when we read it, I think I was older than third grade, maybe 5th or 6th. Anyway, what my teacher had us do was we had to write our own newspaper article about the pushcart war and we talked about the role the media played and we also had to draw our own cover of the book after we finished it. I don't remember much more than that, it was at least 16 years ago if not more! Teachers really do make an impression and personally, I loved this book. I hope your students enjoy it as much as I did.
