1. Many memorable school visits . . .
2. Fun Skype visits/Google Hangout, World Read Aloud Day . . .
Some of you have hosted me at conferences and festivals. Some have made very generous donations to children's literacy organizations. And one of you sent me an umbrella that came in very handy. (You know who you are!)
Each of you has dedicated your time and energy to enriching the lives of children.
What you do matters in ways you can't imagine. You change lives. You make this world a better place by being an advocate for the children you interact with every day.
You deserve a lovely, restorative summer!
