It's Thank You Note Season

I did my last author visit of the 2010-2011 school year yesterday and am happily reading snail mail thank you notes from students. Here are three I opened this week. The first is from a seventh-grader in Dorchester, MA, and the second two are from fifth-graders in Chiang Mai, Thailand, where I visited virtually via Skype.

Sometimes the truth doesn't hurt.

In case you can't read it: "...You were very beautiful when we skyped you. Awesome ... hair."

A script showing the conversation between the class and their teacher:
"Mrs. Leslie is thinking of stopping Bamboo People."
