writing challenge: reflections

See Dick. See Jane. See Spot. See me. See Dick run. See Jane run. See Spot run. See me run. Run home, jacket unbuttoned, shoelaces coming untied waving a book in my right hand, and screaming “I can read; I can read.”

Dick and Jane run. I read


And, I spent the rest of the day reading to anyone who would listen. Eventually, only our cat was interested in the story. He was particularly curious about how Spot ran.

      We are of the Dick, Jane, Spot, and Sally generation!

    I learned to Dick and Jane, too! Boy–does that bring back memories. :)

      It’s weird to compare our reading “lists” with those of today’s students. I wonder if Dick and Jane would even be allowed!

    A few years ago, Dick and Jane were “in” again. Barnes and Noble’s had a display table with reissues of the books, lunch boxes, games, notebooks, and other Dick and Jane memorabilia. I saw Dick. I saw Jane. I saw Spot. I saw Sally. See me want to buy.


I love dialogue. Do you?
