March 16: Show and tell
You’ve been asked to do a five-minute presentation to a group of young schoolchildren on the topic of your choice. Describe your presentation.
I would take in a few books, some of my favorites as a child. Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, maybe even Lord of the Rings depending on just how old these schoolchildren are. Share with them my love of words and how getting lost in a good story can completely change a bad mood to a good one, or brighten even the worst of days. Read them a passage from Harry Potter and let their minds wander to a world of wizardry and magic and quidditch. How could they not fall in love with reading?
