False Prince to my fourth graders for the last couple of weeks. I read it over Christmas break in one day and knew that I HAD to share this gem with my kids. If you haven't read it, I won't spoil the story. But, do know, that there is a surprise that caught me completely off guard. Ever since I started reading it aloud, I've been waiting to get to this part. I've been waiting to reveal the truth.
Well, today was the day. Gasps and squeals of surprise filled the room. Groans erupted next when I closed the book at the end of the chapter so we could move on to math. They are clamoring for more. I can't wait until tomorrow.
