Whatever Wednesday — a chance to post something I’ve seen that I’m diggin’. Though often a cool quote or poster, it might simply be a picture.
Enjoy!… and consider posting your own Whatever.
P.S.–Remember last week I shared Danielle and her signed copy of The One and Only Ivan? That’s now the signed Newbery Award-winning The One and Only Ivan.
[I got to watch the announcement LIVE with my per 5-6 class.]
Congratulations, K. A. Applegate.
Congratulations to us readers who get to enjoy this fabulous book.
How did this come about? I sent out a little Tweet:
[Danielle was one of the 41 students who signed up to read IVAN after watching the trailer. She couldn’t wait to get a classroom copy. In fact, a few kids have gone out to purchase their own.]
Mrs. Applegate responded publicly…
…then messages me later to ask if she could send Danielle a signed copy. I almost fell off my seat.
When Danielle opened the package, I took some pictures and sent one along to Mrs. A. She responded quickly:
No, Mrs. Applegate. You made my day. And Danielle’s. And inspired the rest of the students who now see how kind and real authors are. You’ve made fans for life.
