I love reading aloud to my class. These are 2 quotes from 2 books we have read this year, that the kids felt were important.
"I'm not saying it's going to be easy, Nothing in life is easy. But that's no reason to give up. You'll be surprised what you can accomplish if you set your mind to it. After all, you only have one life, so you should try to make the most if it." (Holes, 1999)
"Think of how much could be accomplished with just a little thought!" (The Phantom Tollbooth, 1961)
Sometimes I think adults could learn A LOT from "children's novels". It's amazing the life lessons books can teach!
