At a book signing at U Mass Worcester this afternoon for New Frontiers in Formative Assessment, three separate people came up and spoke to me about Lost in Lexicon. I was tickled when all three said essentially the same thing: they had bought the book for a child -- their own or someone else's -- but then the adult in the family started reading the book. The adult became so intrigued that the child had to wait until the parent finished reading the book first. This makes me happy, because I meant Lexicon to be a place that parents and kids could share.
