The Girl With a Brave Heart - A Tale from Tehran (Rita Jahanforuz and Vali Mintzi)
We had had some incidents in our classroom about making good choices. This book was a great conversation starter about how we need to take responsibility for our choices and what the fall out of our choices can be.
The story is kind of long, but my students didn't have trouble sitting still for it. It is a great story.
After showing kindness to a strange old woman, Shiraz receives the gift of beauty but her lazy and unkind stepsister, Nargues, suffers a less pleasant fate in this adaptation of the Grimm's fairy tale, Mother Hulda, reset in Tehran, Iran.
