Read full description of the books:Gwennie, Liz and I were talking during dinner. Gwennie told us about the kite in her class. Some kids have moved up to the "level I" part of the kite. She's not quite there yet. She's only a "level H." Nobody's upset about this. Right Gwen?
Gwen: No one's upset about it. :)
Dad: Anyway, I asked if she had any books she could read to me. Any "level H" or "level I" books. She said no, but she did have THIS book that she wanted to read to me - and then write a review of it afterwards.
I told her we could. I thought it would be fun to write a review with just Gwen, because I don't know if we've ever done that - we certainly haven't done it in a long time.
Gwen, have we written a review where's it's just you and me before?
Gwen: Well... *thinking* maybe... Maybe two, or three, or four? I think it's... two. Two... or three or four? Two or three or four?
*I can't tell if Gwennie is repeating herself because she's questioning herself, or if she's reading what I've written, and so I just keep typing what she's reading... two or three or four?*
Dad: So, why did you want to read this book? And where did you get it?
Gwen: Ummmmm... *I didn't ask that question out loud. She read it herself. She must be learning something in school...*
I wanted to read it because it's a good book. It's telling what you shouldn't do in school. I got it from the library.
Dad: Which library?
Gwen: The school library. ...The school is... Parkside? ...One time *student name removed due to confidentiality concerns* tried to get on to Mobymax, and he spelled PORKside instead of PARKside. (*laughs*) He didn't know it wasn't working. But then *another student* told him he spelled PORKside, and he told teacher and all the children laughed.
Dad: You said you wanted to read it because it's a good book. What makes it a good book?
Gwen: Well, what makes it a good book is, sometimes I really like read books about kids who are naughty.
Dad: Why do you think that is?
Gwen: ...MMMmm... I don't know.
Dad: Are you naughty?
Dad: Are you naughty?
Gwen: No. ...Well, not naughty like David, but sometimes I am. I've never got a tardy before. ...Well, only if I had a dentist appointment. And I don't chew gum in class. I haven't really shouted out. Well, maybe one time, but not really. Maybe one time. I don't touch people. I try to always pay attention.
*Gwennie's flipping through the pages looking at all the naughty things David did throughout the book.*
...I don't really... ummm... I don't really budge people in line. I don't want to take their place. I NEVER EVER have a fight with someone with food.
Gwen: No. I never did that before. I didn't really ever even see that happen.
Dad: Do you want to see that happen sometime?
Gwen: Not like... in real life. But sometimes in a book. Like a fiction book.
Dad: Ok. So, let me ask another question. Because it sounds like you're not naughty the way David is. It sounds like you try to be good, right?
Dad: So, how would you respond if someone like David was in your class?
Gwen: Hmmmmmmm.... let me think about that.... ... ...mmmm... I just wouldn't really say anything. Or bother him.
Dad: What do you mean?
Gwen: I wouldn't... like... I wouldn't say anything about that.
Dad: You wouldn't say anything to him?
Gwen: Yeah. I wouldn't say anything.
Dad: Do you think you would laugh at him?
Dad: What if what he did was REALLY funny?
Gwen: Well... maybe a little. But not like, "HA HA HA!!! really loud.
Dad: I'm glad you read us this book. I liked it a lot. I'm surprised I'd never heard of it before. How many stars should we give it?
Dad: Sure thing! I know you wanted to read, "It's Christmas, David," so maybe we can downstairs and read that. Sound like a plan?
