Here are a few of the outstanding characters I saw and the books they represented. I was delighted to hear the principal remind the students that many of their favorite movies were books long before they were movies.

|I'm pretty sure this is the school nurse.|
|Student teacher ... please make note of the fact that she is en pointe.|
|The office staff|
|There were several Cats in Hats and Things 1, Things 2, and probably enough to make it to Things 8 or 9.|
|These two little girls wore my favorite costumes of the day.|
|These are just a few of the other costumes that the kids wore.|
I love seeing kids who are excited about reading. This love of reading will serve them well for the rest of their lives. I know they will be in for a lifetime of enjoyment thanks to the encouragement and enthusiasm they get at this exemplary school.
