I have come from Virginia,  where there were daffodils in bloom, back to Massachusetts, where things are still pretty wintery and grim (but the snow--for now---is gone (and Monday I go to Maine, where we are still DEEP in snow).  Catching my breath a bit and preparing to face the tax stuff. I'll take it with me to Maine where I have taken a vow of isolation and deprivation until I get it done.

This was just sent to me and made me blink in astonishment:

Polish bookmark

Yes, it's a bookmark...in Polish, where THE WILLOUGHBYS has recently appeared in translation.

Here is a great bunch of kids in Richmond, who had for some months been working with my book NUMBER THE STARS and had come up with great projects, including some power point presentations that were very impressive:

Kids:gym
I told them to look for themselves in the photos and email me to tell me who they are---but I'm afraid it's a pretty bad cell phone picture.

The Richmond project was run by the Junior League of Richmond and meant a lot to a great many kids---this group is only one of a number of groups I saw during my time there.

At a different school, I saw some fabulous projects created by students (will post a photo of one after I get it downloaded) and was given a framed collage of my ENTIRE LIFE! made by kids.

Thank you, Junior League of Richmond, for all your hard and rewarding work!  You will make a difference in some young lives.

Its an interesting debate & I've seen both sides--being a librarian for 20 years I've seen kids & teens read all sorts of popular stuff & then some of them come back a few years later & read more popular stuff. Others come back & read, not exactly Shakespeare, but Philip Roth & Elinor Lipman. I've come to the conclusion that it depends in part upon what things aside from pop culture influence literary appetites in one's life. Good teachers can certainly help, but what most studies reveal is that kids SEEING their parents reading & what their parents actually read is a major determinor in what kind of readers children will become as adults.

Your apples remind me of Cezanne's Astonishing apples. http://www.metmuseum.org/explore/cezannes_apples/pop_look.html">http://www.metmuseum.org/explore/cezannes_apples/pop_look.html" rel="nofollow">http://www.metmuseum.org/explore/cezannes_apples/pop_look.html">http://www.metmuseum.org/explore/cezannes_apples/pop_look.html
I agree with your last thought, I've seen it in my daughter. She's an avid reader but she gravitates to the "fun" books when at bookstores.
She's encouraged to bring her own reading material for "independent reading" in class, but she's required to read the material assigned to the entire class.
Eventually, her vocabulary will increase, her understanding will mature and she'll be ready for the more sophisticated material. However, she'll need a good "guide" like a caring teacher or librarian. That I'm sure of.

Mine won't be dragged kicking and screaming into a Shakespeare play, this year, but they will be able to see The Giver on stage for the first time! I'm so excited to see it-- after teaching it for seven years-- and I know they will be, too. I have a great group of eighth graders this year-- good "discussers," so I'm so excited to hear what they have to say when reading The Giver. The passion when they read it always amazes me. They have self-selected reading time in my class, too, but The Giver will never leave the required list as long as I'm teaching. :)

I came across your blog trying to ensure I was spelling your name right and was delighted to find that you have a blog. I also loved reading as a kid (still do!). I am forever grateful for my mother's love of classic literature that pointed me toward good books at a young age. That influence has made an indelible impact on my life.

On April 11th,Cheap Soccer Jerseys Wholesale Beijing time, Barcelona lost 0-3 to Rome. Messi suffered a three-ball defeat in Apennine for two consecutive years. The Argentinians who fought too muchShop By National Team alone lost the opportunity before the game. If the World Cup is ineffective, the 2018 gold The ball prize is again suspended.
Barcelona's campaignNew Products was completely suppressed by Rome, Valved can only expect Messi to once again play the savior, but similar to last year's offensive against Juventus, BarcelonaWorld Cup 2018 was caught in Messi's one-man's singles cycle, the results Messi did not score, many The individual assault is also not the best choice, and it isBundesliga Jerseys similar to the performance of a 0-3 defeat for Juve last season. Barcelona also suffered the same three-ball defeat.
In the first 10 minutes, BarcelonaShop All Products completed four shots. After that, the pace of the game was mastered by Rome. From the 4th minute Sergio Robeto took the goal and was confiscated Other Teamsby Allison. In 90 minutes, Suarez restricted the left flank and blocked it, and the middle 86 minutes. Barcelona only Messi completed 5 shots, one dead, noPremier League other teammates can help, showing the passive chaos scene.
Messi made two shots five times and did not La Ligabreak. Messi's personal ability made all opponents jealous, and in the first round Rome repeatedly attacked with four or five people, making the little fleas Ligue 1uncomfortable. The second round of Barcelona possession of the ball possession of less than all the advantages, Messi 61 touched the ball throughout the field, passingGermany Teams Jerseys only 35 times, pass success rate of 74.3%, below average.
Barcelona 0-2 behind the offensive did not improve,Spain Teams Jerseys an impatient Messi chose more of them to go it alone, frequent ball breakthrough, but this is also the middle of the home team. The Serie A team is theFrance Teams Jerseys world’s number 1 player in defensive discipline, and is unlikely to give Messi a chance to drive straight into the game, especially at home. So Argentina Teams JerseysMessi was directly intercepted by the opponent 4 times in the whole game. He missed 1 turnover and missed the same mistake. To exaggeration.Italy Teams Jerseys
The mentality also affected Messi's free-kick play. HisUSA Team Jerseys 2 shots were non-biased and high, and the free kick was not a penalty. Messi relied on an individual breakthrough to kill a bloody road in 86 minutes.Bayern Munich Jerseys He was forcibly removed from the opponent's four players. It was too late for Brazil's national goal Allison to attack. However, theUefa Champions Jerseys Argentine could not maintain balance even after staggering and slamming, and the single-pole shot failed to put strength and missed the final.Brazil Serie A League Jerseys The opportunity to kill the Saviour at all times.
Barcelona is in a good position in the civil war this season.Colombian Categoría Primera Jerseys The league wins a countdown. The probability of defeating Seville in the King's Cup final is also very high. Argentina Primera Division JerseysThey are in double hope of winning. This is another great opportunity for Messi to attack the Golden Globe. However,Portugal Jerseys after Barcelona's 3rd consecutive season in the Champions League quarter-finals, Messi’s golden goal has been suspended again. Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal Primeira Liga Jerseysseason goals have now surpassed Messi’s. If assisting Real Madrid in completing the Champions League three consecutiveReal Madrid Jerseys championships, Messi will For the Golden Globe Awards, I am afraid that only Argentina will dominate theAtletico Madrid Jerseys World Cup this time. Let’s consider that Argentina without Messi has been half-dogged by Spain.Barcelona Jerseys

With the start of free agency set for Wednesday, cheap jerseys wholesale Boston.com offers a complete guide to the flurry of activity that is sure to ensue.

WEEI.com says if that interest is real things could get very interesting in Foxborough.

ESPN.com says the Patriots should focus on retaining their own players first in free agency. Houston Texans Jersey If Dion Lewis is not one of those players, the team will need to reinvent itself at running back. The Boston Globe believes New England will have some competition to re-sign Lewis. MassLive.com wonders if this could be a much quieter offseason for the Patriots than last year.

The Boston Herald says the Patriots will likely have a plan with or without Nate Solder.
Carolina Panthers Jersey The Texans are reportedly interested in making a run at the left tackle. Rob Gronkowski might be a different story, and they believe he team needs to be ready to adjust in necessary.

After allowing Malcolm Butler to sign with Tennessee this week, cheap jerseys wholesale New England needed to solidify its depth at the cornerback position, and McCourty would seem to fill that bill. NBA JERSEYS He now will have an opportunity to vie for the starting cornerback spot opposite Stephon Gilmore.
This marks the second time in less than a week that Washington Redskins Jersey the Browns and Patriots have consummated a trade (New England acquired defensive tackle Danny Shelton in a deal first reported last weekend).Carolina Panthers Jersey With this latest swap, the Patriots still have seven total picks in next month’s NFL Draft, but move out of Round 6 for the time being, pending any further trading between now and late April’s selection meeting.
