LITTLE ROCK, Ark — A Reading Roadtrip to Booker T. Washington Elementary produced a group of first graders ready for a story.

The trouble is, when you get a room full of hungry minds, what do you read? It has to be entertaining, relevant, and thought-provoking. 

It's a lot of pressure on a roadtrip. 

Then I remembered a story about a monster witch. Some weren't having it, but others loved it! 

The book is called "My Teacher is a Monster." And for the record, the teachers at Booker T. Washington are not monsters. 

As you can see for yourself, it was a wonderful opportunity to share a story about how our perceptions can change when we change our surroundings.

Thank you, Booker T Washington!
