This amazing post is a reminder of why we write for children. Sure, a glossy sticker on the cover is always exciting, but this is so much better. Thank you Kate Messner!
What Happened to Your Book Today
(By Kate Messner)
Somewhere, a child laughed
on that page where you made a joke.
Somewhere, she wiped away a tear,
Just when you thought she might.
Somewhere, your book was passed
from one hand to another in a hallway
busy with clanging lockers,
with whispered words,
“You have got to read this.”
And a scribbled note:
O.M.G. SO good.
Give it back when ur done.
