Grateful: Reading conversations

A middle school student popped into the library the other day needing another book. She’s new at our school this year, and I’m just getting to know her and her book tastes and needs. I’m always frustrated when this happens toward the end of the school year. I want more time to share!!

She had just finished this book. She loved it, as did I, but it was sad.


I knew she’d love this book, but it’s really really sad and I thought she needed a break.


I handed her this book. It’s got sad bits but it is so funny and lovely, too.


She handed me this book, her favorite of all time, I think she said.


I’m honored to have her share an important favorite of hers.

She also picked this book for a re-read when we both exclaimed over how much we loved it.


I know exactly which book I’ll put into her hands next. There’s just enough time before the end of the school year.
