BEAUTIFUL CHILD: THE STORY OF A CHILD TRAPPED IN SILENCE AND THE TEACHER WHO REFUSED TO GIVE UP ON HER
4 journalers for this copy...
Seven-year-old Venus Fox never spoke, never listened, never even acknowledged another human being in the room with her. Yet an accidental playground 'bump' would release a rage frightening to behold. The school year that followed would prove to be one of the most trying, perplexing and ultimately rewarding of Torey's career, as she struggled to reach a silent child in obvious pain and remained committed to helping a 'hopeless' girl, and patiently and lovingly leading her towards the light of a new day.
At the climax of the story, I sat and sobbed, but I couldn't stop reading. Although the storyline is much the same as all the other abused kid stories out there, this one felt different. It didn't have the same overwhelming horror and grief that so often runs through these books.
Torey Hayden deserves a sainthood for her passionate caring ...I just wish that all special needs kids could have such a person in their life.
I feel that this book should be shared, so I'm going to RABCK to someone who has this on their wishlist. I hope she enjoys it as much as I did
I love Torey Hayden books, they're so inspiring!
