Make a Writer's Day! Why I love librarians!

It's kind of dreary here on the rez.  Rainy, damp, cold.

Difficult to get going on a day like today.

Then this bit of sunshine from a School Librarian:

Although my school is in central Illinois, my 3rd grade students found much in common with Facile and his family.  Our school population is  76 % free or reduced lunch and   61% minority.  The themes of hope and determination really resonated with my kids.  They know these are the characteristics needed to be successful, and this book is an excellent example of culturally responsive literature.  Thanks, Karen!

It's nice to hear from readers and their adults.

Made my day!
