S: SUMMER 2011
BC: TOLERANCE PARK was written and illustrated by two 8th Graders from Canyon Ridge School named Jacob and Zach. With a good education and motivation, you can do anything. | This is the tale of tolerance that a group of boys had to learn at the park one day. Their story is an example of how we should all try to treat each other and be seen as equals. Hopefully, their attitudes towards one another might persuade some young readers one day to make this world a better place for all of us.
