About Reader's Workshop: Replacement . . .

Well, it finally happened.

The classroom library copy of The Recruit, the first book in the marvellous CHERUB series broke. Completely fell into two different pieces (part one and part two, a student informed me)

While I hate to see any book in this state, a part of my rejoiced to see it. I've had that book in the classroom for 2 and a half years now. It's survived around 40 different pairs of hands, seen the insides of 40 school bags, chair bags, library bags or tidy trays. It's been rushed through and devoured by some, and lingered over and savoured by others. It's been read by girls and boys (and a few parents too). It's had a very good life.

And I bought a new copy yesterday to replace it - there's a line up waiting to read it next.

It also did a turn in the hospital ward. Vale "the Recruit" I really loved that book and went on to enjoy the whole series.
