Sometimes I have to realize that not every book we read needs to be Caldecott and Newberry Medal material. Though it does pain me. =)
Sometimes I don't love the illustrations and the words don't make me smile at their brilliance. Sometimes boys just like bad guys and superheroes that save the day. Sometimes, like tonight, I have to remind myself that the three of us are snuggled on my bed reading together -- and that is the point. Sometimes I have to turn off my book-loving brain, pull out my best Spidey sound effects and root for the good guys.
