My students loved this book. It's about 2 kids who who are working on a science fair type project. They decide to raise silk worms (who only eat mulberry leaves). This book has lots of academic learning about the life cycle of a silk worm and the ethics about killing silkworms to keep the thread in one piece. Some students were adamant that it's wrong to kill silkworms for their silk. I told them if they were so adamant about it they can stop buying products with silk in it. We talked about when you buy something, you're telling that company "I like what you're doing; keep doing it." If they think it's fine to kill some worms for silk then they should keep buying silk products.

Also, the main character's mother is Asian and is prejudice against African Americans. This was a great discussion about a character they thought was nice and sweet, having another side that they felt was bad and wrong. We talked about having compassion for the mom and realizing the message she received from her parents as a child. Her racism was fear and ignorance. We then talked about compassion for people who have racist beliefs today and how they are a product of fear, a racist family, or a bad experience. The students really liked the mother in the story so they realized racism doesn't just look like mean people yelling and being angry. It can exist in a gentle woman. They realized the main character had experienced different cultures in the US and that her exposure to other cultures stopped the linage of racism in her family.

I love books with deep underlying messages.

The main character and the author discuss how the book is going in between chapters, so that part is the story within the story/book. I consider this book to be multi-genre as I learned nonfiction information about silkworms as I enjoyed the fiction story. My adopted daughter is from Korea and we have both read several books by Linda Sue Park. We think very highly of this author.

It's an interesting look at cultures, and how we tend to stereotype people. Also how some people may want to not identify with their culture because they find it embarrassing. But in the end celebrating one's culture, and appreciating other cultures is the best of all!

I chose this rating because it was a really great book I enjoy and recommend this book to others to read it had different themes in the book like racism, husbandry, and a little peer pressure and it's very descriptive and my favorite part is when Julia (main character) and Mrs. Parks (author) would have conversations with each other about the book and with what's going on in that chapter sometimes Julia would debate with Mrs. Parks but that was her personality which made her a great character and Mr. Dixon was such a friendly character and I do think that Julia's mother was stereotyping Mr. Dixon because of her having a bad experience with other African-American's so she would discriminate however Mr. Dixon did stereotype Julia's family also so they were both wrong on both parts but to find this paragraph up if you get the book you will not

My kids are reading this for the bluestem challenge at their school. They are not done reading it yet but so far they said it was a good book.

I purchased this book due to the fact that I would be attending a conference at which Ms. Park is speaking (I like to get an idea of the presentors background). I knew that Ms. Park is talented, but never did I expect to enjoy it so very very much. As an author I found the entries between the chapters to be facinating. What a great idea. And the story itself was amazing as well. I can not say enough about the whole package other than READ IT! Can't wait to meet you Ms. Park! Julia (not Julia Song, but still Julia)

book had several pages torn out
I loved Project Mulberry because it teaches kids and adults about the life cycle of a silkworm, Ms. Park's life events. ????
