Welcome to WiserKids, a blog designed to help you and your kids grow, learn, read, play and explore with the library and beyond.
Written and managed by youth librarians at Cedar Mill and Bethany Libraries, we strive to help grow readers and life-long learners. We offer reading recommendations, early literacy info, fun learning ideas, library info, and more. We hope you find something helpful here- whether you are a parent, librarian, child care provider, educator or anyone else who shares an interest in growing readers.
Melody Brooks, a 10 year old girl is diagnosed with cerebral palsy. She can’t walk or talk or do pretty much anything. In the book she gets integrated into mainstream classes with other kids, overcomes her disability, gets to play on a quiz team yet finds out how judgmental and mean other kids can be. In the end of her journey to find herself, she becomes at peace and learns a lot about the world around her.
