Book of the Day

Ducks Don't Wear Socks by John Nedwidek and illustrated by Lee White is a new friend of ours. Do you ever think of books that way? Maybe just the characters? I have a few students who have very personal relationships with books, and who can't bear the thought of introducing "new" books into their lives. I also like to think of favorite books as old friends. Certain books and certain characters hold memories for me or seem to comfort Fischer with a bit of "home". Anyway, my nephew gave me this book for my birthday. Fischer, Andy and I have had a great time reading it. Fischer gets a kick out of Emily the "serious girl", and loves seeing her finally crack a smile and the a laugh!
