A Happy Day

Susan Notes:

Cindy Lutenbacher ordered a big box of When Childhood Collides with NCLB. for teachers she knows in Georgia. I admit to loving their comments, but what I love even more is her brief description of the Dr. Seuss Field Day.

Yesterday, the girls and I volunteered at the Dr. Seuss Field Day at ICS, which announced no winners, gave no prizes, counted no scores, and had such intense games as Water Squirt Your Pals and Chopstick Race for Cotton Balls. Several of the teachers to whom I'd given When Childhood Collides came up to me to thank me for your book.

Some of their comments:

"Oh my god. Just beautiful."

"Full of passion. She's a warrior."

"I cried. Thank you."
