Amazing Grace - Mary Hoffman, Caroline Binch

"Amazing Grace" is about a young girl named Grace who wants to play Peter in her classes production of Peter Pan. She is faced with the prejudice of her classmates because she is a girl and she is black. However Grace overcomes these prejudices and stars in the production as Peter Pan. I would use this for any grade to introduce doing a readers theater in my classroom or to talk about diversity and how it does not mater who you are or what you look like that if you truly want something nothing should stand in your way of achieving your goal.
