At the PAWS reading program at the Gloucester County Library last night, yes, I met Sohpie and MC her trainer BUT I also met some totally fascinating children and their parents as well. This 9 year old was very wise and cute and personable. She brought a quick book with her - it was a children's picture book but she knew she could read it quickly. I asked if this was the type of book she normally read and she said no, it was too easy. I asked what her favorite might be and she said Biographies. When I searched further and we talked more, I discovered that she preferred biographies of women. "Who is your favorite?" Without a moments hesitation, she said Mother Theresa. I know that Mother Theresa is all about peace and love and hmmmmmmmmmmm I wonder how she felt about cupcakes?!?
