Tag, We’re It

We'll get back to our story tomorrow. We have important business to take care of today!

We were tagged by Lola for a book meme.

Here are the rules:

1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people and post a comment to Lola once you have posted it.

The book Deb's been reading is called Rules by Cynthia Lord. It’s a wonderful children’s Newbery Honor Book about a young girl dealing with life and with her younger brother who is autistic. She meets another young man Jason, who is confined to a wheel chair and who talks by pointing to words in his communication book. Here are the 6th, 7th, & 8th sentences from page 123:

When I straighten up, I see not only is everyone in the waiting room standing at the clinic windows watching us, but a family on the sidewalk is staring, shopping bags in hand. And in several of the restaurant windows surrounding the parking lot, people have stopped eating to watch. Most of them have their mouths dropped open.”


You'll have to read the book to find out what everyone is staring at with such amazement!

Now, I have to find 5 buddies to tag who haven’t already been hit! I tag the following people:

Rachel @ Rachel Writes for Kids

Fluffy @ Bunny Bliss

Bunny, Winnie, Belle, & Pearl @ NC Bunny

Fez @ Some Bunny

Ryan (Illustrator Extraordinaire!)
