Meet Mrs. Williams' fifth grade class.  Mrs. Williams worries about the children.  She worries that they have enough to eat.  That they have warm clothes.  That they don't dread coming to school each day.  Through the words of the children, we find out the answers to some of her questions.  We learn why Sam is so sleepy.  Why Andrew slams his math book closed.   We learn about their secrets and their dreams.
