“I’m really excited to share this book with my students! I really think they’ll be able to see themselves within Ryan, and her friends, and other characters in the book.” —Leigh Poindexter
Leigh Poindexter from Mary C. Snow West Side Elementary in Charleston, West Virginia, knows her fifth graders will be able to relate to Ryan Hart and her adventures. And Leigh hopes that the irrepressible star of Ways to Make Sunshine inspires her students—and yours!—to go after their dreams.
Leigh also suspects that her students are going to be thrilled when they read that Ryan shops in a place that’s super familiar to them—Kroger. Talk about relatable!
