Junkyard Wonders by Patricia Polacco

     Trisha has dyslexia and she is placed in Room 206, which many of the kids at school call “the junkyard.” She is upset with this as are many other kids in 206. Their teacher decides to take them to a junkyard. She shows them that junk is only junk if you call it that- all the items are actually full of possibilities. Together they take something incredible from the Junkyard and transform it.

The illustrations are Polacco’s usual style.


5/5. This book is inspiring! It teaches that it is not what you are given in life, it’s what you do with it. The neat thing is that it is about Patricia Polacco herself.
