Why I Like My Job

One day last week as I did my library welcome and introduction spiel with a group of first graders, working to get them excited about reading, one child raised his hand and said in utter, unblinking earnestness, “But Ms. AddProb, according to my calculations I won’t enjoy reading until I am FIFTEEN.”


  1. That’s hilarious. Out of the mouth of babes. I love it.

  2. I absolutely love it…don’t nyou just wonder what he calculates will happen at 15 to bring out his inner bibliophile?

  3. OMG that’s hysterical

  4. That’s so awesome…… =)

  5. that so sounds like my son!
