When I was a kid, one of my heroes was the librarian at my elementary school. When we all gathered around her to listen to a story, I just *knew* that one day that would be me. And I did go on to get my MLS, although I’ve never actually used my degree.
But I did get to live my childhood dream last Friday when I read to a group of kindergartners. And it was as fun as I imagined it would be.
Side note: I’m petrified of public speaking, but if my audience was always a bunch of five and six years old, I’d do okay.
Bigfoot Cinderrrrrella is just what it sounds like – a Bigfoot version of Cinderella. Some of the words were huge – like odoriferous (in a kids book, huh?) – but I held my nose to show it meant stinky. The pics were funny and the one with the gathering of all the Bigfoots (Bigfeet?) made the kids go, “Whoa!”
But the best part was the kids recognizing what the story was based on – “Hey, that sounds like Cinderella!”
So fun-times all around and I liked my 10 minutes of feeling like a rock star.
