Author: Vera B. Williams

Publisher: Greenwillow Books (pb. Mulberry Books, an imprint of William Morrow & Co.)

Description: Amy Linker reads this story about members of a family that team up and work together to rebuild their lives after a tragic fire. LeVar and his friends carry through the idea as they create a song and dance number called "Teamwork", the program's finale.

Activity Suggestion: Divide the class into small groups. Give each group slips of paper with sentences written upon them. Have the groups arrange the sentences so that they create a coherent story.
