Natale Ghent
“I feel scared and unsure of what to do next, but decide that no matter what happens, I'm glad I ran away. A pony like Smokey is worth fighting for - even if we did get him for free. A pony like Smokey is no small thing.”
Natale Ghent, No Small Thing

Will Rogers
“If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”
Will Rogers

Katherine Applegate
“I remember something my mama
used to say on dark days:
If you can talk, you can sing.
If you can walk, you can dance.

Ganwar, I whisper,
what if she never comes?”
Katherine Applegate, Home of the Brave

Frederick Douglass
“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”
Frederick Douglass

Donalyn Miller
“Reading changes your life. Reading unlocks worlds unknown or forgotten, taking travelers around the world and through time. Reading helps you escape the confines of school and pursue your own education. Through characters – the saints and the sinners, real or imagined – reading shows you how to be a better human being.”
Donalyn Miller, The Book Whisperer: Awakening the Inner Reader in Every Child
