I frequently use books to teach lessons (in an indirect way) to students. My area of expertise is teaching students with disabilities.
For the individuals that I teach, it is important to make them think about issues -- rather than "telling" them what to think.
This books lends itself to some great discussions. Recently a friend of mine used it with members of the Student Council at our high school -- they LOVED it!!!
A must have...(along with Giraffes Can't Dance).
