One Morning in the Library

The magic of Robert McCloskey's One Morning in Maine enchanted first and second graders this morning. They loved Sal's secret wish for a chocolate ice cream cone, seeing her slip on the rock by the seal (and still laughing), and imagining loons, clams, fish hawks, gulls, and seals losing teeth and making wishes.

Most of all though, they loved thinking of the differences between Sal's life and theirs. And when I asked if they could think of another book featuring Sal, eager hands raised to announce Blueberries for Sal.

  1. McCloskey has touched so many hearts and so many minds over many, many years. Thank you for continuing to offer his books to new generations.
