story about the stories.



on this special day

i brought out

an old treasured story 

written by

my former student, nicole

who i taught for grades k-2

(in a school where we were known by our first names)

 a story about me sharing stories

 made me cry happy tears to read

how much she enjoyed the stories

what ginormous heaps of praise

from a fellow roald dahl fan. 

happy roald dahl story day!!

“words are our most inexhaustible source of magic.”

-albus dumbledore (j.k. rowling, harry potter series)

  1. I imagine you have preserved this under glass and it is hanging in a prominent place.
    But somehow I imagine every wall of your home is covered with testimonials.
    Your blog is your story and we enjoy each and every chapter.

  2. There is nothing so dear as an innocent child’s honesty. What a wonderful treasure to have gotten and the wonderful treasure to keep. You are a great storyteller, as evidenced by your blog.

  3. What a wonderful memory to cherish–for you and Nicole. When I taught fourth grade, I read my class Charlotte’s Web, and we had to go out for recess after Charlotte died, the kids were so upset. Reading to kids is a blessing–for them and the reader.

  4. Ah, magical. two of my favorite lines were, “Indeed she was,” about the best teacher ever, and “That Roald Dahl. He always has a bit of magic in his stories.”

    I hope this story concludes that Nicole eventually writes stories like Roald Dahl.
