Today three different kids read three different books to me. I didn’t read them. They read them. Books they hadn’t read before. They read all the words. Paused for punctuation. And beamed!

And then there’s that reader in our class that reads EVERYTHING to us EVERYDAY and has been for two years!

And then there are those constantly singing, chanting, and rehearsing sounds for the big day to come.

We are a classroom FULL of readers!

Can you hear my heart beating through the computer screen?

“A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted. You should live several lives while reading it.” ~William Styron
