I love finding the perfect books for my students. I love to think about their personalities, their likes and dislikes, as well as books they’ve previously enjoyed. I love telling them, “I saw this book and thought you’d like it.” This morning, as I organized a stack of new books, I came across Mother Bruce and a lightbulb went off in my brain because I knew that one of my older students would love this story. I grabbed a sticky note and jotted the following quick note to her and had it sitting at her place at the table when she arrived for our lesson. Now, I can’t wait until tomorrow to see if she liked it as much as I thought she would!
