I ran across a quote in Sophia Quire and the Last Storyguard: A Peter Nimble Adventure that I thought might bring a smile to your face, as it did mine:
Sophie’s eyes went wide, and she turned toward the knight. “You’re a royal storyteller?” Before this moment, she had not known such a thing existed, but she was nonetheless impressed. She had, in fact, never met an author in person before. As you can imagine, it was a singularly thrilling experience. Should you ever be so lucky as to encounter an author in your life, you should shower her or him with gifts and praise.
THIS! Shower with gifts and praise! lol
Seriously though, folks. Isn’t it encouraging that some children’s book still encourage and emphasize reading? Yay for that!
If you’d like to share other children’s books that do so, feel free and I’ll try to get my kiddos to read them. 🙂
