what cracked me up even more after the fact was that she was laughing just because it was funny... i was laughing, wondering how many times i'd done that exact same thing on that very day...of course, it could just be the reality of life in w. africa and a "WAWA" day.
That is quite possibly my favourite children's book of all time. Perhaps because I've owned it for as long as I can remember (and maybe just a little because of passages like that one!)And maybe that's why I keep lots of mental lists, but very few written ones :)
most definitely a classic. and as i've taught my crew to read, i've always loved being a part of its discovery... and rediscovering it myself.the wheel on the school is another absolute favorite of mine in children's lit.
Stop in for a chat! I love to hear what you have to say ~
