What’s Your FOUND Story?
A fourth grade student walked into the library yesterday morning, triumphantly holding this book above her head:
The book had been lost. Now it was found.
Me: That’s great! Thanks for bringing it back.
Student: I found it in a dream.
Me: You found it in a dream?
Me: What do you mean?
Student: I had a dream last night that I found the book in my classroom at school. When I got here this morning, I went to that spot where I dreamed I found it, and there it was.
