"Call Me Oklahoma! is the perfect 4th grade read aloud.  With a playful main character named Paige Turner, and a poignant message about bravery and self-acceptance, it captures the essence of life as a fourth grader. Call Me Oklahoma! is a must read and should be in every fourth grade classroom!"
Karla Cunha-Cardosa, Fourth grade teacher, Lawrence School, Brookline, MA

"It can be hard to find a book that is appealing and appropriate for the wide range of abilities in my classroom, and Call Me Oklahoma! definitely fit the bill.

Additionally, in our fiction writing unit, we have students take inspiration from their own lives to develop a story.  It really helped to drive the idea in that our own lives can be the perfect jumping off point for creating a story.

Thank you for such a wonderful piece of children's literature. I was so happy to share it with my students."
— Cecelia Gloski, Fourth Grade Teacher, McCarthy School, Framingham, MA
