In early November I talked about “Hot Rocks on the Ocean Floor” to my friend Tracy’s third grade class, fifth time I think. It is always tremendous fun. An age where they are just beginning to understand and understanding is still okay.
A pleasure is receiving the thank you letters. Each charming in its own way. But this one stood out:
Dear Dr. McDuff, I hope you liked Meridian Park [School] cause we liked you. That show was interesting, your awsome! You look like a pro thats what I want to be a pro I want to be a star just like a you. I want to be just like you when I’m a grown up I want to be just like you; Smart intilliegent and the smartest oceanographist in the world.
