After he was born Mary asked if her baby was alright and the doctors reply was no. Of course no parent wants to hear that straight after giving birth. Robert Hoge was born with a large tumour on his forehead which ran all the way down to the tip of wher This truly is a very moving and inspiring read and one in which I won't forget. Robert Hoge was born with a large tumour on his forehead which ran all the way down to the tip of where his nose should've been.

He was also born with deformed legs. The right leg was three quarters as long as it should have been and it had a small foot that bent forward at an odd angle with only four toes. The left leg was evens shorter and only had two toes which were both malformed.

Chapter 4: Teaching Children: from Four to Eleven Years

Mary thought that perhaps her son would die, but her husband Vince believed he was strong and healthy and that he would live. Both Mary and Vince were very upset but it was Mary who didn't want to look at her son and nor did she want to take him home. Once Mary was well enough she left the hospital but she did not take her son with her. Mary and Vince's other children enquired as to where their baby brother was and they were told exactly what was wrong with him.

The children all agreed that Robert should be brought home where he belonged and so their parents ended up bringing him home. Robert must undergo numerous operations which start from a very young age and all these operations all carry very high risks. When Robert is old enough he starts school and this is where he will have to be strong once again.

Robert is determined to let nothing get in his way and we see how he grows into an extraordinary young man. This is a very touching, beautiful and emotional story. I really enjoyed this memoir and I have no hesitation in recommending it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Robert Hoge Date Read: September 28th - October 4th, Date Reviewed: October 6th, Introduction: I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads. When I read the synopsis of this novel I was incredibly intrigued.

What Makes “The Ugliest Woman in the World” Feel Beautiful - Dispelling Beauty Myths - Allure

A memoir of the life of a child that went through surgeries due to birth defects seemed realistic and interesting. Most school aged children and even adults feel like they don't fit in, so reading a story about a life long battle with trying to fit in and how Robert Hoge managed to keep going made my heart warm. Robert Hoge was born with a few issues - he had a tumor on his face and his legs did not form correctly. As a small child, he went through surgeries to remove parts of his legs to the knee and above the knee , remove the tumor on his face and realign his facial features to appear more 'normal'.

Throughout his life Robert had to learn how to adapt - like walking with mechanical legs, deal with bullying, and making life decisions regarding future surgeries. This story is uplifting and inspiring to read, and this version of the story is written as a kid friendly story. I loved this book - it was inspiring, beautifully written and aimed at the right audience. This easy read was made so children would be not only interested but able to understand. Robert Hoge uses metaphors and similes to explain how it feels to be different, which I think will help the audience grasp a better understanding.

I would definitely suggest that anyone read this novel, and if possible that school's should adapt the book into their reading curriculum. If more people understand, perhaps there would be less bullying and hate in this world. The content of this story revolves around Robert Hoge's life and his struggles. It starts from when he was born, to when he was in his pre-teens. If anything, I would have liked to see what his struggles look like now, but I don't know if that would have worked with the audience he was writing to.

Children want to hear about lives similar to theirs, so perhaps it was for the best. The plot moves quick enough to keep the reader interested. I was more than impressed with how the story was adapted - a child could easily read this book and understand, but as an adult I also enjoyed the novel.

It's hard to find stories that translate well for both kids and adult. I applaud Robert on how well he wrote this story. I haven't been able to find any problems with the story itself. It's a great narrative with lots of substance - not only is there a story to be told, but Robert explains how he feels, and how the reader might feel. His metaphors work well with the audience - making a clay head that's perfect, but suddenly there's a giant piece of clay in the middle - and he continues to reference them throughout the novel for further understanding. Overall, the context of the words in this book are excellent.

The author tells a great story, and the fact that it was a true story, a memoir, that makes it even better. The "characters" of the story are mainly Robert and his family, with a splash of friends, schoolmates, doctors and teachers. All the characters are realistic in the setting and of course they are all real life people as well.

You can't tell if they were portrayed the way they actually were, but everyone seems to be acting realistically. No character seems out of place or unrealistic within the context of the story. Robert's character of himself also acts realistically for his age.

I've found in some memoirs that when the author writes about themselves that the child version of themselves acts like an adult. Child Robert acts like a child, which is refreshing. Little Robert isn't having intense emotions similar to an adults, he is acting and thinking like a child throughout the novel. If this novel would have been Young Adult or aimed at the Adult audience which Robert Hoge has an "Adult" version of this novel that you can also check out there probably could have been more themes implemented.

This book doesn't deal with some of the emotional pain and bullying that most likely happened. The pain isn't discussed as much as it probably happened, either. But, this book wasn't aimed at an audience that needs to feel that pain just yet. For the audience it's made for, it does it's job. It explains how he was bullied and puts a light spin on the names he was called. The main theme of this story seemed like "Be yourself" or "Nobody is perfect". Robert could have gotten more surgeries to look more "normal" but he didn't want to. Why would he want to go through more pain, time out for surgery, and the possibility for further injury just to look "normal".

Everyone has their differences, and Robert constantly highlights this throughout the book. Nobody is truly normal - there are individuals with physical, mental, physiological and psychological changes out there. There are no two people alike - even twins are different with their personalities and interests.

If people weren't quick to judge and accepted differences, perhaps this world would be a better place. Overall, the themes and creativity within this book were tremendous. Yes, I would have liked Robert to expand on many topics, but this book wouldn't have adapted well for children if he did. Robert's ability to write to a younger audience but have an adult audience enjoy the book as well is perhaps the greatest strength.

He rivals JK Rowling with that ability, and he deserves the recognition. He also deserves a lot of credit for being able to write a story about being different and have it so warm-hearted. He put such a wonderful spin on something that could have been very terrible for him. I appreciate his work, and he deserves lots and lots of press for this book. His weaknesses within this book are mainly the themes and context that readers wanted - but readers need to be aware that this specific version of the story was adapted for children.

Yes, I would have liked to see more of the struggle of his story and understand what he went through the bullying, the pain, the thought process , but children don't always understand those aspects of an adult's story. Adults understand adults, children do not understand adults. Robert Hoge's book is inspiring and uplifting. This inspirational read is truly a gem and I would love for more people to read this book. It addresses many topics that schools are trying to plant within their curriculums - embracing differences, dealing with bullying, and adapting to change.

This book was incredible, and I can not give it enough stars or great reviews Aug 15, Edwina Harvey rated it really liked it. Robert Hoge is a guy I see at science fiction conventions, I don't know him very well, so my curiosity was piqued when I saw he had a memoir coming out. I learned a lot about Robert by reading his memoir, and am sure his book will interest many readers whether they know Robert or not. In some ways the title and beginning of the book are confrontational.

Teaching Children: from Four to Eleven Years

So many of us are ugly in so many different ways, and feel we belong to what Robert refers to as "The Ugly Club"; outsiders, people to be picked Robert Hoge is a guy I see at science fiction conventions, I don't know him very well, so my curiosity was piqued when I saw he had a memoir coming out. So many of us are ugly in so many different ways, and feel we belong to what Robert refers to as "The Ugly Club"; outsiders, people to be picked on.

Robert was born with a tumour on his face that severely altered his facial features. His legs were also severely deformed. I never realised how badly until I read his book, but then it's never concerned me. His mother rejected him at birth, but reconsidered and accepted him as her own. His father seems to be everything good about the typical Australian male.

This is not a book about heroes overcoming all adversities, but I particularly liked the to me typically Australian outlook on life: By his own account, and with more than a dollop of a very dry sense of humour, Robert was a loud, cheeky kid, who got into just as much mischief as any other boy his age. I particularly liked his recollection of sand-papering his school desk so much he managed to sand a hole in it. As you'd expect for someone who's been a journalist and a political speechwriter, he writes well.

His style is casual, friendly and easy to read. There's a smattering of science-fiction mentions - for some reason I was expecting more - and he's had some remarkable highlights in his life including being friends with writer Hugh Lunn, who is a bit of a hero of mine. All I can say about the book's ending is that if you don't find yourself crying happy tears, there's something wrong with you.

And Hoge is still quite young - giving himself plenty of time for a second book of memoirs. This book was well written and easy to read. Robert's voice is humorous and honest.

I'm sure it will resonate with kids as it did with me. I will be recommending it at my school library. Robert was born with severe deformities including a large tumor growing in the middle of his face and two legs that did not properly form in the womb. He reveals that his mother did not want him as a baby and had to take some time to wrap her head around the reality with newest baby. This book also addresses the topics of bullying.

The way Robert faces teasing is inspiring because he holds his head high for the most part and does not shy away from living his life to the fullest. At one point, Robert was born with severe deformities including a large tumor growing in the middle of his face and two legs that did not properly form in the womb.

The games are brilliant; my son adored playing them, and I particularly enjoyed being able to help him learn while genuinely having fun together. Tackling school work all too easily descends into upset, but the book changed all that. Now, if only I could get my hands on one for every subject he studies The book is a very detailed and comprehensive guide for parents on what our children are taught in Year 2, and more importantly, how this is done.

The maths curriculum explained in a clear and concise way. A book full of good ideas and excellent resources, which can be adapted for all ages and abilities. I only wish it had been available a few years ago when my children were at this stage. The resources are probably the most attractive aspect of the book It is certainly a book I would buy and one I would refer to regularly. Access thousands of brilliant resources to help your child be the best they can be.
