There is no better feeling than having a student run up to you the moment they get to school, clenching a book to their chest that you recommended. Here is how I began my day:
“Oh my gosh!!! **** DIED! I couldn’t stop reading last night! This is the best book ever! I read 50 pages just last night! I can’t believe how good this book is!!!”
For those interested, she is reading the first book in Margaret Peterson Haddix’s Shadow Children series. Actually, she is probably finishing it right now. She made sure to grab the second book from my library before going home, so that she could start it the minute she finishes the first book.
