I’m an idiot.
For years my wife has told me to read Sharon Creech’s Newbury Award winning novel WALK TWO MOONS. I adore many of Sharon Creech’s other books (I can’t read LOVE THAT DOG without getting teary-eyed) and my wife has never steered me wrong in terms of literature, but I have never been able to get past the less-than-enticing title of the book and the even more unappealing cover.
Like I said, I’m an idiot.
My students became aware of my idiocy in regards to this book this year, so on the last day of school, one of them brought in a copy of the book with its new cover:
Just like that, I can’t wait to read the book.
I really am an idiot.
