Chadeau James was one of my students about eight years ago, soaking in The Crucible, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Catcher in Rye. Now she is a mother-to-be who stopped by the school today to load up on books for her baby, due in another month.
This was a tear-in-the-eye moment for me as a teacher. This is a SWEET SPOT for BookSmiles. To help mothers welcome their babies into book-filled homes is simply the best. And the fact that I can do this for a beloved student is even better!
