Last night Melissa came to me to tell me about a new project she would be doing in class. It went something like this....
Melissa: We are to read four books on my reading level by the same author and do a book report on each one.
Me: Okay - that sounds good.
Melissa: Then we get to do a report on the author - all about their life.
Me: That sounds good too. Have you picked your books?
Melissa: YEAH! I want to do it on these English Roses books and their author.
Me: Uh...aren't those written by Madonna???
Me: Uh....well....I'm going to need to be with you when you do your research on her.
Me: Uh...well...uh....she's just not an author.
And when Drew heard: Pick another set of books!
There are just some things a ten year old doesn't need to know.
