This is a book about a little girl named Amelia who is a migrant farmer's daughter. Every harvest her family moves from town to town to follow the money. Amelia cries every time they move. She yearns for stability. With the recognition from a teacher, Amelia finally finds a place she feels she belongs. It is not long until the have to move from this place, but this time she doesn't cry. She found her sense of belonging and plans on returning one day. I think the important theme in this book is even in a temporary situation you can still find a sense of belonging. ( )

I liked Amelia's Road very much. Two of the reasons why I liked this book are that is pushes the reader, and the illustrations. This book pushes the reader in the essence of pushing the reader to empathize with how Amelia feels. Amelia feels sad that she has to move again when she begins to feel like she fits in where they had just moved to pick apples. She begins making friends and likes her class and then discovers that she has to move, yet again. She feels like she has no place that holds sentiment as home to her and reading about this pushes the reader to empathize how she feels trying to find a place she can call "home." The illustrations assisted in pushing the reader to empathize towards Amelia. The illustrations kept showing "Amelia's Road" and the tree that lied upon it. This illustration enforced that this place was Amelia's special place as she called it and then showed her digging the hole to place various momentos she held special to her. The message of this story was that a person doesn't necessarily need a location to have a feeling of home. A person can hold onto momentos and memories of their life and hold those as a reminder of their "home." ( )

I liked reading "Amerlia's Road", a story that tells the message of finding strength and solace even in times of turmoil and change, because of two main reasons. First, I believe the author helped the reader connect to the story through the development of the main character, Amelia, a young daughter of a migrant farmer, through her believable innocence. This character presented the information about her life in a child-like way, like when she describes that her family has to move a lot and dreaming of a real home in a confused in troubled manner, for example. Second, I enjoyed reading on as the plot progressed because it constantly became more complex, with new aspects and details appearing to the reader as they read. The inclusion of side details and events kept the reader engaged, as it slowly uncovered what would come next in the story. A good example of this is when Amelia discovers a "remembrance box" at the base of the tree she comes to find comfort in, and the emotional significance it has to both Amelia, and therefor the development of the story.

I really liked this book! This book provides a window into the life of a child who moves around frequently, specifically in this story the girl was a migrant farmer and had to travel to harvest. I really liked the plot of this story, it begins with Amelia feeling uneasy about not having a sense of belonging anywhere "last year Amelia spent six weeks at Filmore Elementary school and the teacher had never bothered to learn her name". This quote helps emphasize Amelia's feelings of loneliness as she moves from town to town. I also really liked the characters in this story. Amelia is a very believable character. Once she is praised and included in class her whole day turns around and she decides to take a new way home. This way lead her to her tree where she finally felt at home. "Almost every day after work or school Amelia would sit under the tree and pretend she had finally come home". Through this writing I felt emotional for Amelia as she had to move away from her tree to another harvest. The main idea of this story is to show how people can find a place where they belong even when it seems as though there is no hope. ( )
