A Memory Recalled
The senses certainly do elicit memories. I had one this past week as I listened to Bucking the Sarge by Christopher Paul Curtis. It was not the story itself, but rather the narrator on the CD. This fellow must have worked with the SuperKids Reading Series. All of a sudden I was surrounded by EttaBetta and the rest of the gang. At least some of my children learned how to read with this system. We had everything - the texts, workbooks and the tapes, thanks to my brother who sold them when he was a book representative. We all thought the SuperKids were wonderful, although I never heard of any school district actually using it. No matter, the lady who started it went on to different endeavors. Pleasant T. Rowland began the immensely successful American Girl Doll Company.
