I was in California Pizza Kitchen while I read Extra Yarn by Marc Barnett and was just elated. I suppose my face showed a huge reaction because the waiter asked me what I was reading, and I excitedly told him about the book. This is a good one that speaks to your soul. So many themes have me picturing rich classroom discussions for next year: the choices we make, priorities, human relationships, and more. I will read and reread this next school year, I am sure.
