Last Wednesday morning during Page Turner's book club these two sweet girls found themselves sitting and enjoying a great book. 15 minutes before I took this picture, Addie (a kindergartener) had come to school with her big brother who was working the early shift of the student council school store. Addie didn't really have anywhere to go, so naturally she ended up where all the action was...the library. There were about 45 kids reading all around the library. Not surprising, Addie was a bit intimidated and a little worried; a tear or two leaked from her eyes. Without missing a beat, Ava (a fourth grader) noticed what was happening and immediately took action. She volunteered to read to Addie, she wiped away her tears, and let Addie pick the book they were going to read. This makes my heart smile. Kids displaying great character and showing empathy for others.
