Being special is like having a superpower. Schools, too often, are kryptonite. But libraries–libraries are the bat cave.
Tom Angleberger, who by the way is amazing. Seriously, look into some of his stuff. Not only are his books able to reach awesome goofiness, but he is also a voice for kids who are different. I briefly met him at last years mid winter. I wish I had spoken with him more.
*Also, I am going to try to get him to Skype with my students when we do an origami Star Wars party in March.
“Libraries – libraries are the bat cave.”
Doesn’t get any more awesome than that!
