The children come out one by one. They always seem eager to see me. I know many of them by name now. This is one of my favorite things to do. I pull their reading card and do away with the formalities in lightening speed. I skim the back cover to gain knowledge of the contents. They spill the stories with ease, so I know they read the book. I always listen attentively only to pepper the conversation with a question or two. I always leave them with pearl of wisdom. I see the face of God on those days.
