Our Review:

Simon is currently reading this book and loves that the main character has the same name as he does! They are also both in 5th grade, although the book character is 11 and my Simon is still 10.

I love that this book is about two important things – facing your fears and homelessness. Simon (the book character) is nervous to get in front of his class to make a presentation. He is also known as the shortest kid in the class and my Simon is known as the youngest. Simon (the book character) faces his fear of being bullied and making his class presentation. The topic that he chooses to report on is homelessness, which he discovers is more prevalent in his community than he realized. I am happy that my Simon is learning about this topic by reading this book as well!
