Book Review and Activity of Gimme-Jimmy

Maritza Mejia's Reviews > Gimme-Jimmy

This story is a perfect reading for primary levels. The main character is James Alexander, who had no friends since he wasn’t a good friend himself. His classmates at school gave him the nickname "Gimme Jimmy" because whatever he wants, he says Gimme! 
His father advise him to change, but he didn’t listen nor obey until Jimmy bumps into a big change that fix the problem. After his strange incident, Jimmy created a new polite set of rules for himself to treat others with respect. The classmates were excited with the change.
It was a quick read, perfect for bed time or classroom read aloud. It teaches a valuable lesson for all children going to the stage of Gimme.
