Driving home from junior high drop-off, I saw two little girls in pajamas running down the street with books clutched to their chests. Aw! They've been to my library. A few minutes later, a car screeched to a halt outside my house, and a girl got out, leaving the car door swinging open. Book emergency!
I figured the neighborhood elementary school must have been holding a Read-a-Thon. I even spotted the sporty boy who lives a few houses down choosing a novel.
Maybe some of these kids will turn into lifelong readers! Fingers crossed.
