Fan Girl

recliner lounging                                                       
My Mo absorbed in a must read book...

she devours each poem til
her dinner is cold











Mo is reading THE LAST FIFTH GRADE OF EMERSON ELEMENTARY by Laura Shovan - an amazing novel in verse. So good.

Speaking of so good, Poetry Friday is at Violet Nesdoly's blog

Wonderful compliment, Bridget. It is a wonder of a book!

Oh, my heart!

Tabatha said...

Lovely compliments for Laura (both the photo and the poem!).

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Violet! Maureen loved the book - at the expense of her warm meal. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Michelle! =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Linda! And thanks for sharing the love on Facebook. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Laura, for writing a book that makes a young girl late for dinner. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Tabatha! My girl had a hard time putting Laura's book down.

My son also disappeared under his covers, not emerging until he had devoured each perfect line. :-)

Ramona said...

And now, all these comments make me want to dive under the covers (cloudy and cool today) to devour this book.

Bridget Magee said...

Your son has good taste, too, Brenda! =)

Bridget Magee said...

You must, Ramona! You will not regret it. =)

Mary Lee said...

Mo has good taste! (And hopefully a mom who is willing to reheat her dinner when she closes the book with a satisfied sigh...)

author amok said...

Bridget, this TOTALLY made my day. Give Mo a hug from me.

Carol Varsalona said...

Love the term Fan Girl. I can see that Mo is fascinated with the book. Love seeing active readers!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Mary Lee! Yep, this mama knows that a good book can't be rushed and dinner can always be reheated in the microwave. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Carol! My girl is an active reader if there ever was one! Her nose is always in a book...and I am always swooning. =)

Donna Smith said...

Oh, this so reminds me of me when I was that age! I could forgo human contact and sustenance for days for time in a good book! I love seeing kids that engaged. Thanks for sharing this. It is beautiful to see.

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Donna! If only we adults had time to "forgo human contact and sustenance" because we are so engrossed in a book. =)
