This is the second time this book has been a part of my life. My Mom had a copy of it when I was teen, but I can't say that I paid quite as much attention to it back then. I had more important things to think about- like creating a three inch high poof of bulletproof bangs courtesy of Aqua Net.
Nowadays, however, I take time to read a page or two quite often. The short, descriptive sentences that fill each page are so much fun to read aloud!
I read this page today...
I love the line that says, "lying on your back in a snowy field; making an angel by moving your arms in arcs".
The thought of actually doing that would have horrified me as a teen, but these days, even the tiniest flakes of snow send tears of joy streaming down my cheeks. Falling snow immediately takes me back. Back to a 7-acre hobby farm in Minnesota- when all I had to worry about was making the honor roll and my curfew. Oh, and making bulletproof bangs. :-)
One of my favorite lines in the book isn't even really much of a line at all.
It's just one simple word.
Can you see?
There between "deepest raisin color" and "freshly threshed wheat, oats and barley"?
I really dig the way Ms. Kipfer thinks. :-)
