BIRD reader responses

Posted on May 22, 2009 in Books, Reviews, Teachers Rock! | 7 Comments

Wow, my job just keeps getting better!
At the Free Library of Philadelphia Festival, I met Ms. Stokes, an enthusiastic and dedicated special needs teacher from New Jersey, who invited me to come and speak to her students before the end of the year. In the meantime, she bought a copy of BIRD and shared it with her class. Earlier this week I got a package from Lee and Low with copies of some of the reader responses from Ms. Stokes’s class. Here are a couple of the letters~
