Operation Yes by Sara Lewis Holmes is a book to say yes to. This book is almost enough to make you wish you attended school. It features a sixth grade class that has an out-of-the-box teacher. She is able to teach them normal school curriculum as well as how to think outside the lines. They learn that even an ugly, ugly couch can fulfill their dreams.
We loved this book, because in it we see that kids can do almost anything if they put their minds to it.
