I wonder what the world would be like if we could just be "a little kinder." I wonder how I can get my students reading like my son does. I wonder if my students have books at home or parents who read or people in their lives (other than me) that are excited about books. I wonder...
I lost Wonder recently. I'd read the book and promised it to my son next, but when he was ready to read it we couldn't find it anywhere. We both figured I'd taken it to school. So I looked in all of the book stacks and bins in the classroom and couldn't find it anywhere.

Wouldn't you know, that is exactly where I'd put it.
Even more remarkable to me was what my son said next, "I'm almost done with Vladimir Todd- I can probably start it tonight!"
What? Didn't I just send that Vladimir Todd book to his iTouch? I said something to that effect aloud.
"What?" he replied, "It's only 182 pages!"
Oh my. I wonder how we will keep him in books and get him through middle school reading-passion intact.
