I‘m pretty sure that the Pigeon is my spirit animal.
In 1940 England Susan is raising homing pigeons with her grandfather.The National Pigeon Service involves Susan in a assignment:to air drop hundreds of these birds with coded messages into German occupied France.
The Novel includes the role of these carrier pigeons in espionage, war wreckage & its toll, loss,romance,missed chances, despair,hope. By 1996, Susan,a grandma,has aged,& carries her story in her heart.
The Pigeon HAS to go to School (F) by Mo Willems is about a Pigeon who really doesn‘t want to go to school. I think children will relate to this book and find it enjoyable to read. I would have a child who likes to present give a DR to the class. The UDL guideline I would use is 2.4 (have it printed in other languages that were used in my classroom) and the ESOL strategy I would use is number 20.
