In Amazing Grace the theme of hard work and determination is very much apparent. Grace is auditioning for the role of Peter Pan, since she doesn't fit the stereotype of the typical Peter Pan all of Grace's peers tell her she will never get the part. Grace's grandmother reminds her daily not to listen to what the other children are saying because she can be anything she wants to be. I would use this in an upper elementary classroom to teach self-esteem, gender and race, respect, individuality, work ethic, and diversity. All of these things are crucial for children of any age to know.
