The subject line says We Loved May B!
Hello, Ms. Rose.
I am sitting at my computer at school. A lovely group of my fifth grade girl students and I JUST FINISHED reading May B! We plan to write you “old-fashioned letters”, but just had to visit your web site and tell you how much we loved the book.
“ I liked how May was a very persistent girl.” ~ V.
“ I liked how she was brave enough to dig out a hole and try to walk home. “ ~ M.
“I like how she took care of herself by herself in the soddy.” ~ M.
“ I like how she was brave with the wolf.” ~M.
We loved it!!!! Thank you!
I pretty much have the best job in the world.

That is a DREAM, Caroline 🙂 Thanks for sharing this sweet moment. Makes us all remember why we write, to change others.

Aww, so sweet! Teachers and readers are awesome, aren’t they? And who doesn’t love May B (and Kimi and Alis!)? I file notes like these in a “Black Cloud Day” file folder … I pull out during tough times, and it helps get me through!
Great idea, Irene.

How sweet! And I love that they adored the book so very much that they couldn’t wait to send you letters and simply HAD to email you instead.
I got the letters earlier this week. It was so, so sweet.
