When a child takes the time to write a letter to his former teacher,
that in itself is a wonderful thing.
Thank you, Jackson, for reading the book. Thank you for writing to tell me about it. Do you remember chapter reading in the Aqua Room, and how much you loved Little House on the Prairie? I do. We laughed and cried together.
And now you are so grown up. I’m glad you are reading. I’m glad you wrote
me a letter. Thank you!
The Chocolate Touch is a children’s book by Patrick Skene Catling, first published in the US in 1952. John Midas is delighted when, through a magical gift, everything his lips touch turns into chocolate. The story is patterned after the myth of King Midas, whose magic turned everything he touched into gold. Wikipedia
