I received a wonderful gift in the mail today. Thanks to MotherReader and to Gail Gauthier. William is thrilled to have a book signed by the author. He loves to write his own stories, so he was excited by the inscription to "make up stories and games of your own." Here's my happy kid just before heading off to bed to read his new book.
Oh, I'm so glad! After I picked out the random winners I went back to the blogs to see if I could make the best match with the offered prizes. Looks like I hit it exactly right here! Thanks again for playing.ReplyDelete
If young William likes the format of the book--short, humorous stories--you might want to see if you can find him My Life Among the Aliens through interlibrary loan. That book is narrated by a character named Will, named for my own William.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the tip. We just ordered a copy from Abebooks, so William's very excited. There have been a lot of belly laughs with Monster Cat, so we're looking forward to Aliens.
I can't believe that's my little baby William I use to carry around campus! What a wonderful book for him! I have it in my classroom and it's one of my kids class favorites!! - Lindsey Whyte
