Do one thing for your mind, one thing for your body, and one thing for the world (and your teacher!). … I am going to be sad that you aren’t going to be reading to me anymore. But I can always read on my own. I liked the story with the grandpa that everyone thought was crazy. Thank you for bringing us bookmarks. I always seem to need them. Everyone here at the Bergens really like you and look up to you like a role-model. You have made me interested in all types of books not just one specific genre. I feel like I’m in the story while you read. … you also inspire me to read out-loud. I loved every book, but my favorite was the soccer story about the angles and devils. Listening to someone read to us is a real treat since no one usually does. You have shown me how beautiful speaking out loud is. I also love your expression, “Your life is a story.” … I am Jewish too and it was fun to hear a Jewish story for once.
