Every now and then I get a letter that really makes me happy. This showed up just a few minutes ago, and it was a great way to end the day.
"I really didn't want this to be another "thanks for getting my kid to read" email, however, it is just that!! I have searched for quite awhile to find a book to get my son to read. He is in 5th grade and cognitively delayed and only reading at about a 4th grade level. He got "Fangbone" at the Scholastic book fair and I figured it would be like the 203,904,738,994,001 books I have bought and be something he carried around but never really read. Tonight, he not only actively read during his reading homework time, but kept stopping to say, "I really like this book!!" He is now telling me how he needs more of these books for Christmas!! I told him I would be more than happy to get them for him sooner than that.....however, he reminded me we don't get fun stuff this close to Christmas!!
