A few of them are priceless.
Like these from a school in Minnesota:
(Sorry about the boring parts, reader. But glad you appreciated my use of HOGWASH.)
(True confessions: I used to like being sneaky, too!)
"I like the book because Glory is like my friend. She is a good friend. Like me."
Be still my heart...
Another take on the book: "I liked it because it has exciting dialogue. Glory and Jesslyn were always fighting and talking."
(Note to self- write lots of exciting dialog.)
Some send photos. How can an author resist an entire third grade reading her book, holding it high!
I'm still waiting for one class's letters, but they emailed and wanted to know about my dogs. So I sent photos of our most recent sweet pup-- ole Barley, and my two grand-dogs, Ellie and Rocky the Rock Star.
Thank you, teachers and librarians everywhere, for reading to your students, for sharing your love of books, for instilling a lifetime of curiosity and reading for pleasure. I hope you all have time to read exactly what you love- all summer long!
Sweet Barley. We miss him a lot!
Rocky giving me the evil eye for not reading faster. My To Be Read stack is very high.
