Book Em' - 03/13/14
I was at Krisle Elementary just outside Springfield today to read to a couple of classrooms full of third graders. I selected a couple of books I thought they'd enjoy. One was about a little boy who wanted to be a pirate until he found out what that was all about and a "Courious George" book about a pancake breakfast.
This I know, kids love to be read to. They love a good story. Before I waded in, I told the children if they learn to read well they can learn anything. I said if you can learn anything, then you can be anything you want to be.
Thanks to all the men and women on the front lines in our classrooms trying to instill the love of reading and learning. My hat is off.
