Dear Mr. Loerke, last week I had a student tell me he couldn't focus unless he had a clean work environment so I let him sweep the floor. I love my job. Dear Hillbilly Tea, five bonus points for presentation. My roasted cauliflower and hazelnut soup was just as amazing as the antique silver spoon and wooden plank it was served on. Dear The One and Only Ivan, I never expected to learn so much from a baby elephant, gorilla, and stray dog. Thanks for being one of the best books on friendship I've ever read. Dear Timothy James, yesterday I found myself getting just as excited about our new washer and dryer as I did my first banana seat bicycle. I am. old.
Happy Wednesday, brave ones! What good books have you been reading lately?
