Written entirely in dialogue, The Mind's Eye can be performed as reader's theater, but it is a fully satisfying novel
Written entirely in dialogue, The Mind's Eye can be performed as reader's theater, but it is a fully satisfying novel. Courtney learns how to lead an exciting, fulfilling life after an accident causes her to be paralyzed. Her roommate, Elva, sparks her interest in travel of the mind. The book would be good for a discussion about the impact of serious injuries and using imagination in tough times.
The Mind's Eyes is a great story by Paul Fleischman. In this book, a young girl got into a terrible accident and damaged her legs. She also lived only with her stepfather for her mother passed away along time ago. Not getting along with her stepfather, she was stuck at a Home Care while he found a new life with another woman. Although she was lonely at first, she made new friends and adventure. Together they enjoyed imagining about things and places. I enjoyed this book very much.

A novel in play form in which sixteen-year-old Courtney, paralyzed in an accident, learns about the power of the mind from an elderly blind woman who takes Courtney on an imaginary journey to Italy using a 1910 guidebook. Accelerated Reader/Renaissance Learning. Interest age level : Ages 12-17.
A vacant lot, rat-infested and filled with garbage, looked like no place for a garden. Written to be read aloud by two voices-sometimes alternating, sometimes simultaneous-here is a collection of irresistible poems that celebrate the insect world, from the short life of the mayfly to the love song of the book louse. Funny, sad, loud, and quiet, each of these poems resounds with a booming, boisterous, joyful noise. In this remarkable volume of poetry for two voices, Paul Fleischman verbally re-creates the /joyful noise" of insects. The poems resound with the pulse of the cicada and the drone of the honeybee.
Eighty-eight-year old Elva and Courtney, an attractive sixteen-year-old with a severed spinal chord, lie in adjacent beds in a grim Bismarck, North Dakota convalescent home. Ignored by the world, the only resource they have left is their imagination. As Elva and Courtney go on a fantasy trip to Italy (accompanied by Elva's long dead husband and guided by a 1910 travel book), Elva shows Courtney a new way to envision love.
