A Shelter in Our Car is Monica Gunning's moving and authentic story about homelessness in an American city and was developed with the help of the Homeless Children’s Network in San Francisco. Zettie and her Mama left their home in Jamaica for an uncertain life in the U.S. Mama's unwavering love, support, and gutsy determination give Zettie the confidence that, together, she and her mother can meet all challenges. The educator's guide from Lee & Low Books includes a book summary, background, discussion questions, reader-response and other writing prompts, and interdisciplinary activities.

A very detailed lesson plan that can be used cross-curricular.
