I was spending the morning Googling my latest book (oh yeah, like you don't) and came across a pdf of a booklist published by the Grand Rapids Public Library. It was a list of children's books that teach values.
Me (to myself): Oh, cool! My book teaches a value! Who knew?
First value on list: Honesty
Me (looking for my book under Honesty): Nope, not honest.
Second value on list: Kindness and compassion
Me (looking for my book under Kindness and Compassion): Nope, not kind and compassionate.
Third value on list: Respect
Me (looking for my book under Respect): Nope, not respectful.
Fourth value on list: Tolerance
Me (looking for my book under Tolerance): Nope, not tolerant.
Fifth (and last) value on list: Patience
Me (looking for my book under Patience): There it is! Patient?
Note to Grand Rapids Public Library: I am flattered and honored to teach patience. :-) But, um, could you do something about that site of yours? It took 13.7 seconds to load. I mean, come one....I'm a busy gal...I've got stuff to do....I'm waiting, waiting, waiting..Sheesh! Can't you fix that site to load at something around 9 seconds.
