The Best Book Ever!

Today was my last day of Read Aloud for this semester. My class made a very special book for me, which I'm holding up in this picture surrounded by all my friends.
And two of the moms made home-made tortillas, which were very yummy!

Here's my book. It's the best book I've ever read! Each child drew a picture and told the teacher what they wanted to say.
This page was written by my friend Nykia, and it's a picture of me with the words "I'm confused." Out of the mouths of babes! The teacher told me she'd said those words this morning and Nykia must have picked up on them. Either that or Nykia is spying on me! (I like how skinny I am in this picture!) This page was written by my friend Quneitra, and it might be the sweetest thing anyone has ever said to me: "My heart was beating for you." And see her little heart in the picture? Is that not the sweetest thing ever??
This page says, as most of them did, "Thank you for bringing books."

This really was the best Head Start class I've read to. The kids are all really smart and love stories. I'm really, really glad I get to do this!
I passed out copies of The Three Little Pigs in English and Spanish from the Denver Public Library and Christmas ornaments (footballs, jingle bells or lollypops) from me.

What can I say that they didn't already? But I'll say it again. Thank you for bringing books :)

This sounds like such a nice and fun thing to do. Makes me wonder if a similar opportunity is here in my community. I never thought of doing this before.

"My heart is beating for you" just blows my mind. How sweet is that?
