Newbery Medal Winner 1994: The Giver is a book that lets a child's mind wonder. It takes us to another world and community of people who live differently than we do. This book shares new ideas about life, family and what love means. Grades 5-8. Group students up into groups of 3 or 4. Have them use a poster board to draw what their utopian society would look like and explain how they would live. Would it be similar to the giver?
