We love books...

Today I introduced our Social Studies books to the kids. Because they are now 1st and 2nd graders, we are using individual text books instead of a big book for the whole group.
Forgetting that this was their first encounter with text books, I passed out the books and asked the kids to turn to the page we would be reading. I instantly had four hands waving wildly in the air. Confused, I called on a kid to see what was up. He shyly asks me, "Can we look at these books first? They are SO cool!". I also had one kid ask if he could keep his book because it was filled with fun stuff. Of course my whole social studies lesson flew out the window and I let the kids do a book browse. Turns out, that was way more informative than anything I could have taught them.
At the end of the day, a little came over to me and said, "Mrs. L... I love books just like I love you."
Even though they are naughty, I love them just like I love books.
