Lily tells her story

One of the kindergarten students nonchalantly handed this to me as she filed into the library before class.  Taking a cue from her, I simply said thank you and didn't make a big deal.  While the students were getting settled, I read Lily by Lily.  I looked up and sought out her face, our eyes met.  Hers were twinkling with joy.  I tried to convey how much I liked her book.  I planned to talk with her during browsing, but missed my opportunity.  So here is what I want to say to her:

Dear Lily,
Thank you for sharing your story with me.  I love it.  It is wonderfully illustrated. I too like candy and cats, and enjoy electronics.  I especially love books and am glad you do as well.
Your reader,
Mrs. Reed
