Early Morning on a School Day

I wondered who was calling me today before 8:30 am. This early morning call was from my daughter, asking me to please bring her book to school so she could read it. "Okay", I told her, even though I didn't feel like driving to school again, but of course I want to encourage her to read. She's a social butterfly at school, but also enjoys reading and is a very careful reader. Her fifth grade class has some time to read during the school day, especially now since the school year is wrapping up. So I made a second trip to school within a half hour of drop-off to bring her Jason and Marceline by Jerry Spinelli. Before I left, I read the back cover. It's the story of a romance developing between these two characters, who have been friends since the seventh grade. Now they're in ninth grade, and are starting to like each other as more than friends. Hmmm . . . I may read this after she does and see what it's all about. (I also share books with my teen daughter.) I've read other books by Jerry Spinelli and find his books entertaining. It's a lot of fun to read these books as an adult, as I have already been through all this stuff (thank goodness!). My daughter takes them more seriously, as she is very young.
