and I picked it up.
The plastic cover felt so good in my hands.
I loved the sound it made when I opened it.
I could smell the old pages.
It took me right back to the days when mom would take me to the city library (or to meet the bookmobile) and I would bring home a stack of books.
Later in the day, I read the book to my class. What a sweet story!
