I can't resist a kid with a book...

Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice" to the Tuesday Slice of Life sponsored by Stacey and Ruth from Two Writing Teachers.

I'm so excited about my post at Sweet Summer Reads that I wanted to link to it on Slice of Life also.  I interviewed my first guest reader yesterday, the result of a serendipitous meeting in June at my doctor's office.  When you read this post and hear Callum's wise words, you'll understand my hope that all of us will have some students like him in our classrooms when we return in the fall.  I know that it takes a village to raise a reader.  Kudos to the entire community of parents, family, friends, booksellers, librarians, and teachers who encourage young readers.


  1. How cool! Wouldn't it be wonderful if all kids could have that passion for reading? Sounds like an amazing conversation and Twerp is on my next bookstore trip list. Thanks Callum, for sharing. :-)

  2. Great idea: guest reader! I might try this idea for my struggling high school students this year. Thank you!
