Linear@BethM it is a book written in the tone if a storyteller. I read it the summer before 3rd grade because my mom use to make me copy from it to practice my handwriting. She would ask me what it was about and I would make something up. Never really reading it. That summer I got curious. It has shaped how I wanted to be as a mother, and brought my love of books to life. There where times 8/9 year old me would throw it down..9mo
Linear@BethM with the hope it would stop what was happening and save Peter. I got super into it. So yes, yes you should9mo
BethM@Linear what a great story and a lovely way to practice handwriting! Practicing used to make me cry- I wish my mom had done that!9mo
Linear@BethM sasha and her lesson about a napkin, that was my " I want to be like her as a mom " moment. Seriously, read this!9mo
JacintaMCarter@bookcollecter For me, this needed to be about 300 pages shorter. I know that King loves to put in every single detail about everything, but after awhile it started to feel redundant. Most of the action doesn‘t come in until the very end and everything before that is just the kid very slowly making his way across the country.11mo
