barn. Mirandy and her friend dances together at the cakewalk and ends up winning the cakewalk. Reflection: I think this book is important to show the different history of African Americans. This book shows a dancing style being used that not a lot of people may have been accustomed too. I think that it is good to sow children a little bit of history through books like this. Title: The story of a Jumping Mouse Author: John Steptoe Illustrator: John Steptoe Published: 1985

Awards: Caldecott Award Summary: “You will reach the far-off land if you keep the hope alive in you.” That was the words that was giving to the mouse in the book as the mouse was trying to reach the land of the legends. The mouse was in for a long journey. As always in life things will be difficult when you are trying move ahead but as the mouse began to believe in himself that’s when he began to reap the rewards. Reflection: I think it is important for children to see a book about perseverance and determination. I think it is also important for children at a early age to understand the possibility of hardships in life. But it is even more important for children to understand the concept of fighting through it all.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
