Touching Spirit Bear

Most Recently Read Book:

Touching Spirit Bear

By Ben Mikaelson

I first learned about this book at an inservice where a consultant for our school district used an excerpt from this book to model visualizing.  It was such a strong example, I, of course, had to read the whole book.  It's the story of a boy who has so much anger and rage inside of him.  One day, he takes it out on one of his peers and gets in trouble.  Instead of having to serve a jail sentence, he is sent to a desolate island in Alaska where he has to stay for a year as he gets over what he has done.  It's an interesting story of survival and overcoming hard times.
