Slice of Life | Book Love



When I told my class I had another new book by
Mo Willems, they almost turned themselves inside out.
After I finished reading it, M came over,
took it out of my hands, and hugged it.

  1. Isn't Mo Willems the BEST!! I teach 5th grade and we LOVE him, too. We are NEVER to old to give his books a hug. I plan to share your SOL with my 11 year olds! They can connect.

  5. I, too, hug Mo Willems books ... and I have to ask! What new Mo Willems book? Waiting is Not Easy? (A new fave!) Or something else?

  9. There is absolutely nothing better in the whole entire world than sharing a great book with kids. What a privilege we have, to get to do this job!
    P.S. I accidentally went to your other quote website first, and loved the most recent quote about responding to kids! My prayer for today! Thank you!
