Crew Mate Belle’s grandma contacted me on her progress with Polly’s Piralympics. Previously she had been reading Polly’s Piralympics on Crew Mate Belle’s weekly visits to stay with her. Belle had even started reading some of the words herself.
“She read nothing this week.”
“Oh.” I was puzzled.
But soon found out why. There had been a concert at school that Crew Mate Belle had taken part in. It had finished, after 8pm, which is pretty late for a six year old who still has to get home etc., etc..
“So I gave her the choice, as the play finished late, she could either come home with me as she usually does on a Wednesday, or go home (Which was in fact closer.)”
“But what about my book? Your house.”
“Well unfortunately the drive was just too much after such a long day and she fell asleep in the car, was carried into bed and that was that.”
Never mind little Belle, that is the most amazing thing about books. They can wait. They are always there tomorrow, bulging with their characters and story line. And I am sure that Polly the parrot will be there puffing up her chest and spraying out her feathers when she sees you open the pages of Polly’s Piralympics next.
