"Every child is like
"A little world with ever-changing weather,
"Nights and mornings. And somehow, here we are,
"Spinning through the universe together.
Unforgettable students in this fifth-grade classroom reveal their private feelings about birth and death, a missing bicycle and a first kiss, as well as their thoughts about recess, report cards, fitting in, and family.
