Thank You, Sergeant Curran, Our Pen-Pal

Thank You, Sergeant Curran, Our Pen-Pal –

Some of the wonderful letter’s Jennie’s class wrote to send to Sergeant Curran.

Clint, shown above reading to the wonderful kids, is the father of Sergeant Curran. The book he is reading was one of his favorites.

There is nothing like story time to connect a child to the characters and true meaning in a book.

What a wonderful true story my dear teacher friend Jennie tells here! 

The man who read the story was the father of the sergeant all the kids were writing to in the military. 

The idea that they were thanking him for protecting them is just wonderful; it really makes it very clear how connected we all are on this planet.
