Kids Walking to School? Nope!
Over the past year, during this COVID 19 pandemic, seeing our neighbourhood kids walking to and from school has reminded me twice daily just how much I look forward to getting back into classrooms, libraries, and book clubs with my books!
Ontario's most recent decision not to let students return to school (for now) means that in the world of this enthusiastic YA author, who loves to interact with school kids, I am missing those joyful parts of my work day and can only imagine how students feel being back to online learning. Oh, what I would give to see those eager/excited faces before me, hands raised and waving madly, wanting so much to talk about what they have read and how they felt about it! Fingers crossed that we'll be able to make those meaningful connections at some point not too far down the road.
