it was amazing

I am a huge fan of Sharon Creech, but this is the one book I love so much that I wish I had written it. Yes, if I could have written any book for kids, I think I would likely pick this one, but I am glad that Sharon Creech wrote it so I could just enjoy being a reader of it. I will use it with my middle school kids this year, and I look forward to discussing how it is all about "show, don't tell," that which goes unsaid, the power of poetry, the ability we all have to express ourselves, and what it means to be an inspirational teacher. Phenomenal piece of writing.
