Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Susi’s Students Review A Life Worth Living by Jennifer Probst

Happy Thursday to all!  Today’s post is a little different from my previous posts.  As some of you may know,  I am a teacher.  I work with several age groups as well as with children learning English as a Second Language.

A few weeks ago, I found this wonderful story A Life Worth Living written by the talented Jennifer Probst and read it to my students.  After reading it, I decided to have my students write their own reviews of the story.  I took the opportunity to teach them about reviews as well as ratings.  They were also introduced to Goodreads.com.  Their finished reviews were awesome!

As a proud educator, I scanned and sent their reviews to Ms. Probst.  She immediately thanked my students with a heartwarming letter.  Let me just say, they were so excited to get a letter from an author. (I was too.) 🙂

I would like to thank Tamie for letting me share a few of these reviews with all of you.

I certainly hope you enjoy them.

Finally, If you are an animal lover, I recommend this book.  *Warning- Keep tissues handy!

I gave it 5 bones!
