I just got your book in the mail at school!! I showed it to my principal and she had me order 8 for the ESOL Department and the entire 3rd grade! I've showed it to two of the five 3rd grade teachers and they are excited to have another resource for their classrooms. One teacher commented that the principal told them "no more books this year." She must have liked it a lot since she wanted to place the order.

P.S. We have been making things just like in your book all year! It's F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S!
