Yesterday a 2nd grade ESOL student came in to the library. Very politely he
asked if I had any books on Martian Swamps. I asked him to repeat himself
and again he said he wanted a book on Martian Swamps. I smiled and told him
that as far as we knew there was no water on Mars so there would not be any
books on a swamp there. He thanked me and left.
At the end of the day he came back with his teacher. She said she was here
to help him find books. I asked what he would like to get a book about. The
teacher said, "I sent him earlier to get a book on marshes and swamps but he
told me you didn't have any."
We all had a good laugh when we figured out what had happened!
