To give my students a new perspective on their possessions during this Thanksgiving season, I chose this book to present in a digital form. A young boy and his father live in an airport because they are homeless. Children nowadays are so caught up in what gifts they'll be receiving at Christmas, they do not even stop to think about other children, some even younger than they are, who do not even have a place to live.

"Fly Away Home" by Eve Bunting I chose this book because it is so well written and my students can learn great moral lessons from it . It's about a young boy named Andrew and his father who live in an airport because they are homeless. They dream about finding a home and work and going to school. An excellent metaphor is introduced when a bird gets stuck and vies for freedom and finally does. Will Andrew's wish come true? Find out here! Buy a copy of book here: http://amzn.to/2wHYneT.
