My Story Reading Experience: John Dias

An Odd Request


A week or so ago, I got an odd request. Well as it turns out it wasn’t odd at all, but at the time I thought it was.
 
I was asked by a local teacher to be the “guest story time” reader to a group of 2nd graders.

“Me?” I thought. “Huh?”

But then I thought, “How bad can it be?” It would only take about 20 minutes and after all, I do preach 'Give, Advocate, VOLUNTEER' at my job. So “OK, I’m in” I thought.

Then the surprise came. Not only did I not mind it, I loved it. The kids were attentive and happy and frankly, it just made me feel good!

I see some Dr. Seuss in my future. . .
