The number of children's books I own probably reaches the thousands. No exaggeration. It allows me to keep the class library well stocked and the books fresh and rotated through the year.
But, of all those books that I have to offer, the most popular book...the one that never stays on the shelf more than a day...that has exchanged hands continually since September...and has undergone the most wear of any other...is all about how to be "cool" in the third grade.
They don't ever talk about it though. It rotates around the room quietly, as if in secret.
This strikes me as so...funny/precious/kinda pathetic.
Who knew 8-year-olds had this dilemma so heavily on the brain?
