Thank You, Mr. Falker is a beautiful picture book about a young girl who struggles to learn to read and is bullied at school. A warm relationship with her grandparents and a supportive, dedicated teacher give her the confidence and skills to grow. This book, with beautiful, emotional illustrations, is good for all readers including parents, teachers, and children of all ages. Readers can relate to and empathize with experiencing and overcoming struggles, and the positive, supportive relationships that foster growth and love.
