Nelson County Middle School is doing a school wide read (or listen) of THE ABSOLUTE VALUE OF MIKE. It was such FUN talking with these smart, funny, clever young people! Here are some of their creations:
Signs from the book for various rooms (I like how the front office got to be “Big Dawg,”) and quotes:
A beautiful Lego bridge and map, just like Mike’s, and a cat clock just like Poppy & Moo’s:
In fact, all the clocks in the school were transformed into “Felix the Cat” clocks:
A bulletin board with Lego tile comments folks can leave related to the book’s themes (“Do you remember a time you were lost?”), a skit, quotes from the book and even, the piece de resistance, Past’s shopping cart complete with laptop, cooler and photo of Misha! Wow! And even flowers and a Relay for Life luminaria in my honor! Yup, this is what makes a writer’s day — no, a writer’s whole year! Thanks, guys!
