It’s always a treat to receive an email like this from a parent:
Last night I read your book to my younger daughter.… She loved the book, and decided it was her new favorite and she wanted to take it to school when it was her student spotlight week. Today she and [her brother] were fighting over it in the car, and I read it to each of them for a bedtime story. At least this week, it’s a household favorite!
It’s especially great to know that Emmanuel’s story is touching young readers as much as it touched me.
