I really want to read Tom Angleberger’s Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue. After two long nights of parent-teacher conferences I came home and found a package sitting on my table that more than likely contains Mr. Angelberger’s new book. Not opening it last night was torture.
I’d really like to drop everything I’m reading and read this book cover to cover.
I’m not going to read Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue this weekend. I’m going to wait. Liam is going to read it first.
Liam is a third grader in my classroom that is obsessed with the Origami Yoda series.
He’s read them all at least three times. I encourage him to try and read other books. He humors me by reading something else for a few days, but as soon as he finishes it he goes back to whatever Origami Yoda book he feels is due for a reread.
Today when my little SuperFolder walks into our classroom he will find the package sitting on his desk. I imagine he’ll open it and then other students will gather round. The commotion will get our classroom a little flustered. I’ll probably smile, talk with the group a little bit about who we think will yield Princess Labelmaker in the book, and then move on to my next reading conference.
