Well, here I am again after a very long time away. I had to re-register, even!

Today was our last day of school before Christmas break. I read the book You Are Special by Max Lucado to my students. It was a very touching, beautiful story. It was one of those children's books that work well for adults, too.

It is a story about Wemmicks, who are little wooden people who spend their days giving each other stickers. Clever, pretty, or talented Wemmicks get golden stars, while untalented or ordinary looking Wemmicks get gray dots. The Wemmicks' creator, Eli the Woodcarver, teaches one gray-dotted Wemmick, Punchinello, where his real worth comes from.

It kind of made me think of A.I. Just a little.

Thanks for the recommendation, Matthew.... I'll definitely check this book out.

Oh and so sorry that you had to reregister ..... you do know that we lost 4 months of the most recent posts and registration data due to a massive computer fault, don't you ?

Thanks for that recommendation Matthew. And itīs great to see you back on the forum!

I am still reading Super Toys at the moment. I am not as much a reader of books as I should be. But Super Toys certainly has me glued to my seat. It is really awesome.
