With a name like Al Capone Does My Shirts, I was settled in for a good light read, not. Not that it isn't an easy read but . I gave this book one star because overall Al Capone does my shirts was a very slow read, it was hard for it to keep your attention. Not that it isn't an easy read but there is pathos in this story of Moose Flannagan. Moose is the brother of a severely challenged sister, Natalie, who cannot function in society and is sometimes entombed in her own frightening world to the exclusion of even her family. Moose's father is a prison guard/electrician on the island of Alcatraz. Those who love some historical fiction books might enjoy this book. But, I felt it only deserved one star.

Convict Choir Boy Wednesday, May 1, 1935 The next week I do my best to stay away from Piper. But the more I steer clear, the more she seems to want to be around me. She’s planning something

Convict Choir Boy Wednesday, May 1, 1935 The next week I do my best to stay away from Piper. She’s planning something. yourself, Annie tells me on Monday. On Wednesday I find out Piper has given Scout 105’s baseball, and then she’s stopped talking to Scout. I guess she doesn’t need him anymore. And Scout doesn’t seem to care, which surprises me even more. You can have her, Moose, he tells me while we’re warming up for our lunch game. She’s more trouble than she’s worth.

And secondly, Moose's sister is starting a new school, which everyone hopes will help her become more integrated with those around her. When Moose comes up with some pretty cunning money-making schemes based on his famous co-residents, he does not count on his sister becoming inadvertently involved. A charming, funny and utterly enchanting book that skillfully and delicately weaves a humorous tale with some important issues.

Al Capone Does My Homework. Al Capone Throws Me a Curve. Without going into excessive detail, Gennifer Choldenko manages to portray an era, adolescence and the pain of a disabled sibling in a different time with alarming accuracy.

Today I moved to a twelve-acre rock covered with cement, topped with bird turd and surrounded by water. I'm not the only kid who lives here. There's my sister, Natalie, except she doesn't count. And there are twenty-three other kids who live on the island because their dads work as guards or cook's or doctors or electricians for the prison, like my dad does. Plus, there are a ton of murderers, rapists, hit men, con men, stickup men, embezzlers, connivers, burglars, kidnappers and maybe even an innocent man or two, though I doubt it. The convicts we have are the kind other prisons don't want. I never knew prisons could be picky, but I guess they can. You get to Alcatraz by being the worst of the worst. Unless you're me. I came here because my mother said I had to.

The main plots are beautifully written and well imagined (the much I read). I only wish the content was more appropriate for my 10-14 year old kids. A few mentions of 'private parts' slowed down my enthusiasm for the book. I finally stopped reading when the brother was made to see his special-needs sister naked (the author didn't need these scenes - the book would have been great anyways without them).

My fifth grade son who is high functioning and definitely on the spectrum has to complete a book report (in three weeks), and the required genre is historical fiction. I settled on this book, and it arrived today. Based on the reviews, I decided that he and I would read it aloud together (though he is a good -but sometimes reluctant - reader). I knew I had to select a high-interest book because he will gravitate toward books he's read before or titles that are not challenging enough. Additionally, unless the book is REALLY interesting, he wil refuse to complete any written responses. So...This afternoon we read six chapters in 45 minutes (the chapters are very short), and he loves it (and immediately started writing his early observations). He finds the details of Alcatraz fascinating but mostly really likes Matthew and Natalie. Natalie is autistic and clearly has sensory and social barriers. My kiddo thinks she's terrific. So far, this book is a WINNER. The language and terminology is not squeaky clean, but it's authentic to boys and authentic to 1935. The characters are well-drawn, and the plot provides lots of teaching-moments related to the Great Depression, our penal system, family relationships, etc.

Required summer reading for annotations prior to Advanced 6th grade ELA class. My son enjoyed the book a lot, though annotating takes a little of that excitement away by slowing it down. Thanks to other reviewers I discussed Al Capone with him before he read it. We also discussed the words rapist and blasphemy in the sense I was comfortable explaining. I would not recommend this book for children younger than 11 just for some of that content. But overall from what I read, it was a good read for middle schoolers with a little background. My son enjoyed the book and read it a second time to be ready for his test.

I substitute teach occasionally and often when the class is off at music, lunch, etc. I browse the books laying around to see what young folks are reading these days. Many times I pick up something and get hooked. The 5th grade teacher had just got in a copy of "Al Capone Does My Homework" and I read enough of it to be intrigued so when I got home I downloaded the first in the series. I just downloaded the second one and will likely finish it over the weekend.

I could barely put down my Kindle. I have yet to read a book written for young people that grabbed my attention like this one. I like historic fiction and this Ms. Choldenko has found a niche in history that few of us know about and filled it with interesting characters and a plot line that doesn't just confine itself to its unique location. The story of Moose and his sister Natalie is nicely woven into the overall plot along family life during the depression and Moose's coming of age, friendships, romances, and the natural curiosity of the youngsters about their notorious neighbors.

I'm definitely buying this one for my 13 year old grandson!

I love this book! I had to read it for an education class but I am so glad I did. I will definitely be reading more of the "Al Capone" books from this author. This book was also recommended in one of my classes that deals with special education. This book is not only for teenagers but I think it's beneficial for any age group! I'm in college and I enjoyed reading it and got a lot out of it. Don't hesitate to buy it!

The book, Al Capone Does My Shirts, by Gennifer Choldenko tells the story of a family who moves to Alcatraz in 1935 due to the father's job. The location of this family's move is not the only oddity of the plot. One of the main characters, Natalie, is described to have what we would classify today as Autism. Although the book never comes out and directly says Natalie has Autism, this is not unusual for the time period, because Autism isn't recognized until 1943, eight years after this book takes place. Due to the fact that no one in the book recognizes Natalie's true disability there are many questions looming between the family, outsiders, and doctors about how to handle and take care of Natalie. The book portrays Natalie's disability as accurately as it could in 1935. The interactions between her and others, mostly other children, are displayed as they would most likely take place now. There is skepticism, questions, and bluntness that comes from the children, but also ultimately acceptance. On Alcatraz Natalie's parents find it safe enough for her to spend amble time outdoors with her brother, as well as the other children on the island. Although it is only a small group of children that live on the island, Natalie is at most times fully included into their daily play and adventures. Throughout the book there is some degree of resistance from a few of the children, but nothing more than what one would expect from an 11-yearold growing up in a society that is uneducated about the disability that Natalie possesses. Despite the fact that no one really knows how to address Natalie's disability she is still almost fully included. Her level of inclusion in society is appropriately high given her circumstances and environment. The small number of children on the island allow her to be included in the group, without having an overwhelming amount of children around her, and the children that are included in the group is always constant, allowing Natalie to get to know and feel comfortable with the others and without having to experience a lot of day-to-day change. This book would be appropriate to use on a middle school level, depending on the reading level of the students. Being a Social Studies teacher I would use this book because of it's historical elements, but also as a way to introduce and start a discussion within the classroom about disabilities. Since the book never comes out and says what Natalie's disability is, it is easier for the reader to not characterize and prejudge her abilities by knowing that she has Autism. Without knowing this the reader can more easily separate Natalie as another one of the children in the book and her disability. Al Capone Does My Shirts is an educational and entertaining read. It is a great book for anyone to use that is looking to spark a discussion about disabilities and inclusion with children in a way that they will find easy to relate to and understand.
