Sometimes you know that a meeting is just meant to be. When you have a passion for helping students read and write. When you are looking for just the right reading materials for struggling readers. When you have a drive to find the “Just Right” text that they can read. When you want to share that motivating drive to get kids reading and you find someone else that shares that passion.
That is how I feel about meeting author Yasmin John-Thorpe last November in Green Valley, Arizona.
