I recently read Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli, and am now reading Love, Stargirl, the sequel. It was a really inspiring book of friendship, acceptance, and love. In honour of Stargirl, and because I was rather intrigued by this idea, I have now started my own version of a "happy wagon". In Stargirl, she has a small wagon on her shelf with 20 pebbles in all. She puts a pebble in the wagon when she's happy, and takes one out when she's not. I put 20 pebbles in a small dragonfly dish of mine. At the moment there are 20 pebbles in the dish, and I will begin to take out and add ones over the next weeks and see how it turns out. Here is my "happy wagon":
Have you read Stargirl? Are you going to? If so, will you start your own "happy wagon"?
