The Art of Miss Chew by Patricia Polacco. This author has many books, and I also love Thank You, Mr. Falker which is the true story of how a teacher helped Patricia with her reading disabilities. This is also a part of the Miss Chew book, but it focuses more on art and life. Miss Chew has Chinese heritage and shared a proverb that spoke to my heart this Christmas season:
"Yesterday is history. Tomorrow a mystery.
Today . . . a gift--that is why it is called 'the present.' "
Each day is a gift.
