A sticky note Example from the book: Alabama Moon
I was surprised that Moon became friends so quickly with Kit. After all, he hasn't been around any kids his age--ever. Though, I think they are becoming good friends and this may be important later on in the story. Moon offers to make Kit a deerskin hat. He says: " As soon as I get out of here, I am going to find a deer and make you a hat." (page 80) Kit was the first one to reach out to Moon when they were eating lunch. All of the other kids were afraid to talk to Moon. As I read on, I'll pay close attention to how their friendship grows.
