A Good Quote.

We often talk about how nonfiction authors are teaching us about the subjects of nonfiction books; fiction authors teach us about how to feel.  We're always looking for the big idea of fiction books.  WH and I were chatting about this today.

He said, "You know, Mrs. Overman, I think Diary of a Wimpy Kid is just full of big people and they're always making bad choices, but the kid gets the blame.  I think Jeff Kinney is trying to teach us how to be better people when we read his books."


  1. What a wise observation the student made!

  2. Wow! That's some deep thinking!

  3. WH talked about a lot about jeff kinney.What was WH feeling when he read (diary of a whimpy) kid?
