This P book by Grace Byers and pictures by Keturah A. Bobo is about finding acceptance to love who you are, how to be respectful and kind to one another. This book would be great for a CR as it goes to a rhyme so it‘s something that everyone can sing along to. #ucflae3414f19

maciforster It won New York Times best seller and Goodreads as well. It goes along with UDL principle 9.1 to explain your expectations so your students can set them as well. Also with EL strategy #3 to boost their confidence in themselves 2mo
maciforster Here is a story mapping activity that pairs with the book it can be used based on the student‘s level: https://www.teachingbooks.net/clp.cgi?master_id=58034&lf_id=9 2mo
DrSpalding Story mapping is an excellent idea for this title and you have done a nice job with your universal design and English learner strategies once again. This is a beautiful book! Just because something rhymes does not mean it‘s poetic. This is realistic fiction. 2mo

I Am Enough by Grace Byers and illustrated by Keturah A. Bobo is a beautifully empowering piece of poetry all elementary classrooms should have. It touches on themes such as resilience, love, respect, and inclusivity while using leveled vocabulary and spectacular drawings. This is a perfect book for IR and a truly inspiring read. #UCFLAE3414F19

karlasanabria1 The following link provides more information on the book as well as two lesson plan options for your reading subject classes. https://www.teachingbooks.net/tb.cgi?a=1&tid=58034 4mo
karlasanabria1 The UDL Guideline that would best fit with this book is supporting decoding of text (2.3), given that is a poem it does have certain metaphors children may need help comprehend to its full extent. As for the ESOL Strategy that would go along well with this poem, I‘ve chosen reinforcing the key ideas you present again and again (15) to ensure the students understand the poem‘s meaning. 4mo

Many books (especially children‘s books) don‘t recognize those of all different abilities, races, and genders. This book hit the mark on every single level of inclusivity.

I am enough by Grace Byers, published in 2018, is a book that everyone should take a moment to read. It is important to teach kids about loving their differences, and this story is a good way of getting that very idea through to them. While as a society we have made great strides in order to better our community, we still need to continue to push through on our standards to make it a more equal, loving word.

Great book to bring about great discussion for children. I can see using this in a classroom. It could even be used as a daily starter to each day to remind students about diversity and loving yourself.

The 2018 GR Picture Book Winner. I liked the celebration of girl power, although the title doesn‘t quite go along with the text. But I finished it with a smile on my face, the positive messaging that promotes diversity, compassion and self-love is for all ages!

The structure of the writing in the book is repetitive in a unique way. They don‘t rhyme exactly but they tend to be close or use similar types of words. The text goes sentence by sentence along with illustrations which makes it easy to follow and understand.

Through rhymes and positivity, Grace Byers lets young girls know that they are enough. This RF picture book is inspiring, motivational, and a must have. I wish this book was around when I was a kid. #lae3414sp19

jessicabaksh UDL principle 9.1 goes with this book well because it talks about expectations and motivation 10mo
DrSpalding Excellent choice! You are missing an English learner strategy and you need to reconsider the genre. This is not nonfiction. 10mo

Published in 2018 and illustrated by Keturah A. Bobo is a lovely story of poetry in which repetition is used to draw the reader into the story using words. This poetry book is absolutely appropriate for children because it discusses diversity and accepting others for their differences and it can apply to anyone! It uses rhyming loosely yet isn‘t dependent on it!

This is a poetry book written by Grace Byers, I am enough, that was published 2018. This poetry is about a child that is more diverse than her friends and the people around her. The poetry does not start to rhyme until the last couple of pages. There is repetition going along in the poem. This is a good Poem to teach children about diversity and treating everyone as equals.

This book was published in 2018 with illustrations by Keturah Bobo. It is about a young girl who lists many activities that she participates in that make her a normal person just like everyone else. The poem used repetition and reinforcement. It is appropriate for young children because tells a story through simple words.

I Am Enough by Grace Byers and illustrated by Keturah A. Bobo, 2018. This is a wonderful piece of poetry that promotes diversity and loving yourself. It follows a simple a b rhyme style through most of the poem with an occasional c line to end a stanza and uses repetition to further drive the point. It‘s a beautiful poem perfect for being read out loud. The illustrations are beautiful and semi-realistic making it easy for a reader to relate.

I Am Enough is a poetry book written by Grace Byers and illustrated by Kenturah A. BoBo. This book was published in 2018. It is a great diversity book that I would definitely recommend. The plot is that every individual is enough regardless of differences. This book uses repetition in the line “I Am Enough.”
