Happy Saturday, Mr. Sharp!

Dear Mr. Sharp,

I think this is the first year we started summer break on the same day. I hope the last week of school went very well for you and your students. 

Have the best summer break ever! :)

  1. Love the end of your video. It was as if you were drawn back to that book just one more time, and who can blame you? My book talk for The Marvels pretty much consisted of hugging the book, sighing and saying, "It's just so good." Nothing I said could encapsulate Selznick's masterpiece.
