Product Description
I read Serafina and the Black Cloak in two days and could not wait to share it with my 6th grade English Language Arts students! I rated Serafina and the Black Cloak five stars and wrote the following review on GoodReads.com: “I teach 6th grade English Language Arts and CAN'T WAIT to do a novel study with this book! I read it in a matter of days ...murder, mystery, magic ...this book has it all. I especially love the lessons to be learned ...facing your fears, overcoming insecurities (so common in middle school), and unconditional love from parents AND friends. Outstanding and unique storyline.”

-this Serafina experience was intended to last 3 weeks, but it lasted 6 weeks because my students were so into it
-took many different elements of Serafina and expanded it into all subject areas including history, geography, and biology (starting point for mythology of cats)
-a total of 96 kids participated: 4 classes
-a handful of my students went to the Biltmore Estate over the Christmas break because of their interest in the book
-the assignment culminated with an option of writing a thank you letter to the author, Robert Beatty, OR writing the first chapter for a sequel
-my students and I were THRILLED to learn about a second book: Serafina and the Twisted Staff; check it out: https://www.facebook.com/robert.beatty.1806
