THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “Jette Black and Her Seven Friends”

Karen Sukenic of California says, “Jette Black speaks in a voice that both parents and children can relate to. The theme focuses on a child that feels “different” and is teased because she is tall. I can’t think of anyone in this world who hasn’t experienced some kind of teasing because of some aspect of their life – their physical appearance, how they speak, their name, their family structure. In the story, the main character, Jette, learns how to not only respect other people’s differences, but to feel good about her unique qualities. The special ending is sweet and caring. The illustrations stunningly capture our multicultural world.”

TODAY’S BLOG

My cousin, Patricia Eddings, sent me this piece.  I thought it was hilarious!!

 

My Favorite Animal

Our teacher asked us what our favorite animal was, and I said, “Fried chicken.”

She said I wasn’t funny, but she couldn’t have been right, because everyone else in the class laughed.

My parents told me to always be truthful and honest, and I am.  Fried chicken is my favorite animal.

I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA.  He said they love animals very much.

I do, too.  Especially chicken, pork and beef.  Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal’s office.  I told him what happened, and he laughed, too.  Then he told me not to do it again.

The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was.  I told her it was chicken.  She asked me why, just like she’d asked the other children.  So I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.

She sent me back to the principal’s office again.  He laughed, and told me not to do it again.

I don’t understand.  My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn’t like it when I am.

Today, my teacher asked us to tell her what famous person we admire most.

I told her, “Colonel Sanders.”

Guess where I am now. . .
