We have been reading A Drop of Hope by Keith Calabrese. It has a bit of magic, a message of friendship, and characters that you can really connect with. The book is told from the point of view of several different characters that are in middle school in a small town. The situations that these kids deal with are very realistic and relatable childhood problems. The three main characters include one girl and two boys. The two boys have very different backgrounds. One is from a more affluent family, and the other family is not as fortunate. It’s great to see them make a connection. You’ll want to take a look at this PDF excerpt and see for yourself!

What I loved about A Drop of Hope
I love the values displayed in this book. I want my children to choose kindness and empathy. I love how those values endure against anger and fear. It shows that small acts of kindness, even those done by children, can have such a big effect. This book is just the message kids need right now.
What ages would enjoy A Drop of Hope?
This book is targeted to boys and girls ages 8-12. My daughter is turning 8 next month and my son is 10. They are both enjoying it. I think the perfect time to read it would be the summer before starting middle school, because it addresses so many issues a child might encounter.
