In celebration of Picture Book Month, we are reading picture books. Picture books to remember.
I shared the title of a recently published book with our school librarian. I shared it with our school social worker and psychologist. I shared it with a teacher who mentioned she had a student crying every day at recess because she was feeling ignored. This is a picture book to remember.
My second grade group of four boys spotted the new book on the whiteboard ledge first.
"Oooo, can you read that book? Pleeeease!"
"I'm sorry, our time together is up. It's time to go--"
"C'mon! Just read the first page!"
"Ok! Ok! I can't say no to that, especially because it is one of my newest favorite books!"
Have you ever had a comment that made you stop and think? Or a post that you can easily connect to? It happens quite often here in this writing community, but I rarely take the time to share my thoughts and reflections beyond my comments. Today, I am. I am writing to learn. To learn more about me.
I've thought a lot about Terje's comment:
Also, her SOL postabout learning about herself through her writing has me thinking too. I can relate to her reflections:
"Blogging and being part of SOL community has helped me to learn about myself. Deciding what to write about and how to write has helped me to see what really matters in my life. Sometimes people who comment see things in me that have gone unnoticed to myself or they bring out the best in me."
