him oh hi there I'm Abby and I was just reading one of my favorite books to read to my class it's called she would speak voice she brings big voice was written by dr. Becky Bailey and land burden the publisher is loving guidance Inc and they published this story in 2004 the book is set in Schubert school and the main characters are Schubert a lightning bug Benny one of Schubert's classmates and miss bookbinder an eight-foot-tall angel and I like to you after a second a third reading of this story when I get to that line about how mrs. book my new looks like an 8 foot tall angel always like to insert my own name so instead of miss bookbinder date for college with Miss happy good luck all right so this story begins with the first day of school at bug Valley the school at bug Valley and Schubert walks in excited about school and he's got a big red juicy Apple to give to miss bookbinder he's ready for a new year ready to love class ready to get to know his friends and his teacher so he brings her a red juicy apple that he's so excited about well Benny walks in big Vinny right there and he knocks Schubert over and poor Schubert falls down his Apple rolls out of his bag Vinnie takes the Apple and the spins are conflicts so Vinnie has not been e and he has naqshi bird over and takes the Apple that well miss bookbinder comes in swoops in like an 8 foot tall angel that she is and she walks through these steps of confronting Benny walk Schubert through the steps of using his big voice or an assertive voice to tell Benny that he needs his Apple back that it's his Apple so miss bookbinder walks Schubert through using in a sort of voice to speak Benni she models it for him and has some practice with her before she walks with him to talk to Benny using the words that she gave him by the end she Burt talks to Benny gets his Apple back and he realizes that his sports up power and that is the author's purpose to inform children that their words have power and how they can speak up for themselves and the book has a very encouraging tone to me because it shows children that they can speak up for themselves and what I really like about the book is that it helps me remember what I how I can model for my students how to stand up for themselves but it also models for me as the teacher what to say so it models for the children what they should say and it models for the teacher what they say so we all learn from this book and that is one of the many reasons that I love Schubert's big thank you
