"I love Mr. Panda from "Please Mr. Panda" by Steve Anthony. Like myself Mr. Panda is extremely complex, yet extremely simple. He is reserved yet profound on his expectations of life. He does not need much in life. Donuts do not interest him. He does not need the frills of life just basic courtesy and respect."

"My favourite childhood character was Dumbledore from Harry Potter. My dad read the series to my sister and I when we were little. Dumbledore was my favourite because while he gave Harry and crew space to figure life out, he always gave them enough wisdom and confidence to point them in the right direction. I think this is the role of schools - to guide but provide space for kids to figure it all out themselves. "

"My favorite character growing up was Matilda. I loved here because I always wanted to have powers like her when I grew up and I also loved the idea of having Miss Honey as my Mom. I used to always wear a ribbon in my hair to look just like her. "

"During a busy day at our school one of my strong readers was asked by a fellow classmate what it felt like to be able to read a full book cover to cover. He had a simple response "it feels calm, it lets my take a break in my mind" . Would like all students to be able to have that same response when asked "what does it feel like to read a book?" "
