      There once was a girl who lived alone, in many homes. She was incredibly curious and a little frightened. An introverted and bookish traveler, she dreamt of faces and places she loved but never saw.

HELP! 

Today our school got a new animal alphabet puzzle to use when teaching phonics. There’s A alligator, E elephant, L lion… and then there’s N, W, and X … which none of us teachers have ANY idea about.

Are Books Bad?

      Yes, go, go—I would not wish you back again.

George R. R. Martin, A Storm of Swords. Not entirely sure how to interpret that. Any thoughts?
