Today while standing in the front office visiting with my friend Dee, I overheard a conversation between a lower school student and teacher. The student's class was returning from a visit to the library where the child had picked out two chapter books. The student was waiting for a parent to come pick her up for an appointment, so the teacher offered to take the books back to the classroom while the student was at the doctor's office. The child politely declined because she wanted to read her new books while waiting to see the doctor.
I was inspired by this child's eagerness to dive into her new book!
