By Adama, 5th Grader

October 26, 2017

Guess What’s Inside!

Disabilities can’t stop you from doing nothing. If you still have disabilities, you can do stuff like play soccer and ride a bike.

All Aboard the Book!

In the beginning,  Emmanuel’s mom wish someone can carry him to school because Emmanuel was getting heavy for his mom. Emmanuel had no one to play soccer with. Then he saved his money to get a soccer ball.

Picture your favorite Part

In Emmanuel’s Dream, my favorite part is when Emmanuel try to tell people to help him get a bike. In Ghana, they said no money. He send a letter to San Diego, California, and they send him a bike and a helmet, shorts, and gloves!

What a character!

Independent

Confident

Generosity

Super Setting

The setting is in his home Ghana, beautiful Africa.

What’s the Problem?

The problem is that he want to do something rather than play soccer.

What’s the Solution?

One day, they send him a bike, plus a helmet, shorts, socks, gloves! He was happy.

That’s the Big Idea?

Don’t let things stop you.

Disabilities can’t stop you.

Try, try, never give up.

Never make fun of people.
