Binky’s Words is an autobiographical poetry and interactive book for grade levels five through eight or anyone wanting to relive their childhood. Binky takes you on a mystical journey as seen through the eyes of a child via dreams, observations, and dialogue: a hands-on, mind-on experience.
Binky invites you to such places like her fifth grade gym class of Square Dancing, and first grade blues while tackling math at the dining room table. Each poem precedes or is followed by open-ended questions, fun facts, and anecdotes. 23 books in stock/No reorders.
