I've been reading this book to my class. I remember my 4th grade teacher reading it to our class and I absolutely love the book. So I designed a mini-project around it and turned it into a little bit of social studies/reading/morality/religion all together. I love seeing the kids so excited about reading. They are getting pretty involved with the characters and the story in general. But the thing about this story is..... it's making me a little emotional when I read it. It's got some really sad parts to it that are kind of hitting home right now. And reading it sometimes brings tears to my eyes. And I don't like doing that in front of ANYONE. So, we make a joke about it. Before I start the next chapter, the kids make sure that I have the box of tissues next to me. And one time when I read a really sad part about one of the characters NOT having a mother.... I almost lost it. But I asked one of the little boys to make me laugh. So he made this silly sound come of his mouth and the whole class cracked up. Me included. On Friday, I almost got to the end of the book. I could have finished it but I wasn't ready to. I promised to finish it tomorrow.

I'm about to start into reading 'Flowers in the attic'. I'm taking it to FLA with me. I know this isn't much of a report, just wanted to let everyone know. :D

I'm reading that Scott Peterson book by Catherine Crier and it is GOOD. It has a lot of info that I've never heard before and I followed that story closely. I have a few comments to make about Amber Frey. I don't like her and even though I wanted to read her book, I didn't want to put money in her pocket. Now, I don't think she is anything more than another one of Scott's victims. This doesn't make me like her any better. I basically think she is a loser because after only a few dates, she was sending out pictures of him to her family and friends..... "LOOK WHAT I CAUGHT!" ... a good-looking guy with money... or so it seemed.
