I’m really dating myself with this one! Do you remember the Art Linkletter Show by that name? Google it and see some videos from the program. They are pretty cute. As kids, my brothers and I as well as our parents loved that show and watched it weekly on our old black and white TV where you had to get up to change the channel or adjust the volume. Believe or not! Well kids really do say the darndest things even today.
After my classroom visits last week reading Life in the Neck New Friends, I have a few of those kinds of sayings to share as well. Keep in mind that I was reading to 8 & 9 year olds in 3rd grade. I won’t use names to protect the innocent.
“Do you know my Grandma?”
“How old are you, really?”
“Are you the author or the illustrator?” “I wrote the story so that makes me the author.” “Oh, so you drew the pictures then, right?”
“Did you teach my Mom or my Grandma?”
“If that story was real, that Old Coyote would have eaten that little fawn right there in the garden!”
“Do you really live right in the neck with the animals – like out in the woods and all?”
These book reviews are some of my favorite!
“I have 100 books at home but my favorite is the Neck I like that they get a lot of friends.”
“I have 15 books. My favorite is Life in the Neck. Diane Davies will be glad to hear this!”
