To the Sea is a great book written by Cale Atkinson. It is about a boy who feels invisible, like he doesn't have a friend, until he meets Sam, a very unlikely friend. Tim helps Sam get home in the sea, a seemingly impossible task. Finally, Sam leads Tim to a potential new friend.
This book would be great to use for making predictions, retelling, discussions about working hard and persevering, and for narrative writing. Check out the preview for specifically how I might use each of the pages in my own classroom.
