Coraline - Neil Gaiman

"Coraline" is a fantasy book about a girl named Coraline who does not like her new flat and does not like her parents because they work all the time. She discovers a door that leads her to a parallel world that is everything Coraline wants. However the other mother wants to change Coraline and keep her with her forever. That is when Coraline realizes that she likes her life as it is and does not want to change. I would use this in fifth or sixth grade to discus with my students the importance of appreciating what they have and who they are and not to change for anyone.
