What has Chestnut been reading all week? What did she bring to school to read during the last week of classes, and regale other kids with during lunch? Why this, of course.
See, I bought this book for a…project I'm working on. And she immediately found it and cannot stop reading it.
At first I thought this was funny and random, and then she came to the dinner table asking this:
• Did you know that singing off-key is illegal in Kentucky?
• Did you know that whaling is illegal in Oklahoma?
And I thought—wait, this isn't inexplicable at all! This is actually just awesome.

I would love to see someone try whaling in Oklahoma.
I think that should be the name of your….project!
This could very possibly lure my non-reader thirteen year old into a book. Thank you.
Here is a link to a book about strange laws in the U.S.–it’s out of print, but you might get lucky at the public library. My eleven-year-old son fell in love with it last summer 🙂
