.Today I brought all the books I bought at the book fair into the classroom.
Pick a book to read. I told them.
Something about a book begin new and signed by the authors made the children really excited.
Dominic looked at all the books and picked Rice and Rocks. He saw there quietly, reading and turning each page slowly.
When he was done, he looked up at me and said in a slow and emotional way,
Ms. Lilly, I really liked this book.
He sat there thinking and I didn’t interrupt. But now, I want to know what exactly he was thinking about. Maybe tomorrow I will ask him why he liked the book.
