今日はよかったです。授業の中で生徒はトテモ元気だったから元気になりました。2年生選択英語授業でシェル・シルヴァスタインの「おおきな木」を翻訳して始めました。子どものとき、「おおきな木」の絵本が大好きでした。大学時代、シグニーと一緒に本屋さんにいったとき、「おおきな木」を見たのでそこで読んだら涙が出てしまいました。すごく感動させられるストーリーのことが忘れました!

Journal for 2005-6-15 Wed..
Weather: Sunny Plan: Akagi JHS

Today was good. The students were really lively in class, and that made me lively, too. In the 8th grade elective English class we started translating Shel Silverstein's "The Giving Tree." I loved "The Giving Tree" when I was a kid. When I was in college I was in The Bookie one day with Signe and I saw the book, so I decided to pick it up and read it. By the end I was full out sobbing in the middle of the bookstore. I forgot just how amazingly moving this story was.

  • I loved "The Giving Tree" when I was a kid.

    I'm with ya. I came upon that book in my school library just the other day and flipped through it. Even thought it was in Japanese, I started crying.

    (I didn't realize it was Shel Silverstein, though)
    • I have no idea what it is about that book that always gets me. I thinkit's because it's so sad, but the tree's unconditional love of the boy is awe-inspiring.
