The Special Delivery Book Birthday!
I was able to be there when Mrs. Caramanello's class opened their package; she carefully untied the string and found their new book! The looks on their faces were priceless. Next they opened the red envelope which contained a letter from Philip Stead asking the students to think about a time that they had sent or received a package or letter in the mail. The real mail. I had to leave to teach my library class, but Mrs. Caramanello and her class had a lot of fun reading together! Later on, I borrowed the book from them so I could read it too. What fun! I cannot wait to share it with my other classes.
What a delight it was to participate in this extra-special book birthday celebration! Congratulations to Philip Stead and Matthew Cordell for their Special Delivery!
