CHILDHOOD DREAM FULFILLED? - CHECK!
"I still can't believe I am an author."
It hits me everyday. At every book sale or kid's letter to me, or new review (this one is my favorite of all times I think).
But what has really made me smile in that 1o year old, beaming-proudly way is this: I am part of the SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIRS. I still remember getting those wonderful newsprint sheets that get sent home so we can check the little boxes next to the books we'll get. I remember it all - the joy of choosing my own books, the anticipation... and then getting the books handed out and then rushed home to be devoured.
I'm now on that sheet of newsprint. And the kid in me can't wait to get home and tell me all about it - hoping beyond hope to check as many boxes as I want!
