John's Turn by
Call Number: PIC BAR 2022
Publication Date: 2022-02-24
E. B. White Read-Aloud winner Mac Barnett celebrates individuality in a story told with tenderness and subtlety. It's John's big day at school today--a performance for Sharing Gifts time. His bag is carefully packed and prepared, his classmates are ready, and the curtain is waiting to open. John is nervous, looking out at all the other children staring back at him. But he takes a big breath and begins. Mac Barnett's compassionate text and Kate Berube's understated and expressive art tell the story of a kid who finds the courage to show others his talent for dancing.
