Y wants to run and play and not worry about Eddie Lee tagging along One hot summer day though Eddie Lee takes. Be Good Eddie Lee by Virginia Fleming Illustrated by Floyd CooperThis book is about a little boy named Eddie Lee who has down syndrome Christy his neighbor was told to be good to Lee who has down syndrome Christy his neighbor was told to be good to Lee Her and a boy named JimBud were headed to the lake in search of frog eggs and noisy Eddie Lee follows JimBud soon lost patience with Eddie Lee as he was loud and clumsy and Christy soon lost patience with JimBud because there were no egg frogs in sight Eddie Lee found the frog eggs and even surprised Christy with lilies It was as if they had been friends all along The problem in this story was the *FACT THAT JIMBUD AND A LITTLE *that JimBud and a little of Christy were excluding Eddie Lee from the fun they were not giving him a chance to enjoy the lake This book is for upper elementary age students because it gives detail and it tends to be on the longer side gaining attention from older grades than ounger grades The language style was easy to understand and was well picked for the creation of the book However this book caters toward the upper grades due to the use of vocabulary I think the illustration did a good job highlighting the main events within the book The illustrated used soft colors which helped get the image of a warm spring day The words in the book did stereotype the little boy with down syndrome One character accused him of not being able to read There is not really any cultural diversity within this particular children s book All the characters are white Language and the Mind young children Genre Realistic FictionChristy and Jimbud are close friends As they go about exploring a their world searching for frog eggs they particularly Jimbud do so at the exclusion of another local child Eddie Lee Eddie Lee has an intellectual disability The other children freuently underestimate what he can contribute as a person and as a friend It is when Eddie Lee shows Chirsty beautiful parts of the woods that she hadn t noticed before and demonstrates his ability to think critically that she begins to notice that she had overlooked than frogs eggs and the small pond She had missed some of the complexities that make Eddie who he is At the end of the story he puts his hand over his heart and proclaims It s what s here that counts Children are often cruel and it is not uncommon for them to exclude children who are unlike them in their play without taking the time to get to know one another or have much regard for each other s feelings This book is an excellent jump off point for conducting conversations about treating others the wayou would like to be treated and also for conversations about passing preemptive expectations and casting judgement over other childrenBe Good to Eddie Lee was a perfect example of realistic fiction The attitudes of the children concerning Eddie were true to many real life experiences and I expect that children listening to this story will have much to consider about their attitudes with children who are different from them at the end of this tale The story has a rich plot with healthy character developmentAs a reader I was able to identify with all three of the books main characters Though the plot is very slow an easy going the story progression is not easy to guess The dialogue is written in a Southern US dialect "THEY TELL EDDIE LEE TO GIT AS A RESULT "tell Eddie Lee to git As a result child friendliness of the language may depend somewhat on the region where the text is being read I appreciated that Eddie Lee plays the hero in the story It is refreshing that in a story about a child with a disability he savessurprises the other characters rather than the story being about them and how they overcame their biases For that reason I included this book in a set of books designed expose oung children to people with disabilities in an effort to encourage empathy and understanding The story s illustrations were as life like as the tale itself The illustrator did an excellent job of depicting beauty in nature where it may not have been easily imagined The scene where Christy and Eddie find the pond in the swamp and realize how Christy's mother always tells her to be good to Eddie Lee a neighborhood child with Down's Syndrome But Christ.
