Reviews for A Week in the Woods (2 vol.)
5I have to say that every single book I have read by Andrew Clements has been a winner! This author really knows what makes middle school kids tick... let alone his understanding of what makes adults kids! Andrew Clements is a true student of human nature.
The theme I find most encouraging in this particular book is that no matter what a jerk we may be, or no matter what mistakes we make, or no matter what terrible choices we make, every day is a new and fresh one!
Mark is a young man who has extremely rich parents They barely pay any attention to him. They send him all over the place from home to home and school to school. This experience has left the 5th grader cynical and jaded. Who could blame him?
When Mark gets to yet another new home and school in New Hampshire, he decides he is going to tune out everyone and everything at his new school. He decides he will not interact with them, because he won't be there long enough to get to know anyone anyway.
Mark's science teacher, Mr. Maxwell is an innovative, environmentally conscious educator. He seems like a typical liberal gentleman who is open to all ideas and all people. Unfortunately, he immediately labels Mark as a "Spoiled Rich Kid" and decides to shut him out too.
The great thing that happens in this book is that Mark and his teacher both change. They aren't trapped by the choices they made and they both evolve into better people in the end!
Every day we start with a clean slate, and it's all about what we decide to do with that day, that makes us who we are.
This is a very encouraging book... well written and as always perceptive!
