What? His wife didn’t like him?

Chiild writing on worksheetIt is so interesting for adults to see a situation through the eyes of a child.  I had lots of fun opportunities to do that when I read my students’ biography reports each year.  They read information about their chosen person in encyclopedias and other books–and gathered the information on note cards.  Like all teachers, I emphasized that they must not copy material word for word from a book.  As a result, their reports had some funny interpretations.

Here is one of my favorites:

“Abraham Lincoln was a very popular president.  I’m pretty sure everyone liked him except his wife and John Wilkes Booth.”



As a friend of Susan’s, wife of a teacher, sister of a teacher and mother of one, I already bought 3 books to send out, and one on my Kindle. Good job, Susan!”


“Loved the book. If you have not ordered it folks, it is worth the time to do that.”


“The kids and I read the sample on Amazon and we were all laughing. This would be a great teacher gift!”


Here’s a link to the book on amazon.com
