DD6 is in first grade, and the library books are color-coded for reading levels. A few weeks ago she shared her frustrations with me that she couldn't get blue books. I suggested she advocate for herself and speak to her G/T teacher about the issue, but apparently there was some miscommunication, so after that I got involved, and her G/T teacher kicked off whatever processes the school needs to verify her reading level and get her access to harder books.

So yesterday was her library day, and the librarian told DD she could get any books she wants, but if she wants to get gray or (some other, non-blue color) books, she'd have to read a page to the librarian before she could check it out. DD was very happy about this development, and her explanation for WHY she was so happy was:

"Because my favorite thing is learning, and my second favorite thing is reading."
