I had a lovely surprise today: three sixth graders visited me after school. All three were avid readers during their CPS years, and I have truly missed them and our spirited conversations about books since they “graduated” to the middle school. It was wonderful to talk about some fun library memories and discuss books new and old. Each girl left the library with a bag full of books to read, which warmed my heart. Here they are, shortly after leaving the library, diving into their new treasures:

The good news is, I’ll get another visit when they return all those books.
