My parents are gearing up to head south to their new home in the coming week. And they cleared out the stuff they held onto for almost four decades. I had to share one of the gems I found in my newly delivered “care” package from Mom and Dad.
Book reports were a monthly thing in my elementary school district. I imagine it was the same for you too. Teachers discouraged us from doing book reports on films for obvious reasons. But I begged my 4th-grade teacher Ms. Rucki to allow me to do one on “Return Of The Jedi,” She relented.
Because of her grace, I decided to do everything I could to make the best book report cover and the content inside. I remember analyzing every nook and cranny of the cover of the paperback to make as faithful a recreation as possible. In retrospect, I must say I am still proud of the grade I got! I thought this book report ended up in a dumpster somewhere. It was a huge surprise to receive it today in the mail.
If you have anything “artsy” from your childhood, feel free to post it in the comments for a nostalgic discussion of “growing up Star Wars.”
