The world of a child can be a vastly different place than the world that adults occupy. Our Mascot Means Brave and Courage contains non-fiction pieces written by elementary school students on the things that matter most to them: special memories, wishes for the future, reviews of their favorite places, how-to guides to the things they know how to do, and essays on topics that mean the most to them. While reading this collection, you will step inside the neighborhoods, schools, worlds, and minds of the students of 826LA.
Written by the students of 826LA's After-School Tutoring program in Mar Vista.
