My group was comprised of kindergarteners, and we all had a lot of fun. As usual, the kids said some interesting things. A few highlights:
1) "I don't know why Dr. Seuss disappeared." (This was followed by the substitute teacher saying that Dr. Seuss didn't disappear, but rather, DIED. After seeing the kid's expression, I quickly changed the subject.)
2) "You're pretty." (I'll be she says that to all the librarians!)
"3) Maybe you can come to my house!" (Probably not the best idea, but I appreciate the invitation.)
4) "This book is crazy." (This was while I was reading Bark, George by Jules Feiffer. And she's right. It is crazy.)
5) "Can you visit our class every day?" (Aww.)
And then they gave me a cute certificate. All in all, not bad for a Friday morning.
Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss. RIP, you VIP.
