Back home after a marvelous tour for The Bridge Home. So this week, I’m just going to post my video and say thanks again to you all for sharing Viji, Rukku, Muthu and Arul’s feelings and for befriending them and for your empathy. I loved how many people from all over the world told me how much they loved all the characters. I’ll try and post my final GRA Q & A video on Friday (or Sunday) and I’ll be posting a few ideas for ways you could help make the world a better place for kids (and for the adults you will become). As always, if you want to leave me questions, click on this post’s title (or click the title under recent posts on the right) and you’ll be redirected to a new screen featuring just this post alone and if you scroll down, you’ll see a box where you can leave me questions. Please, as before, word your questions carefully so you avoid spoiling the reading experience for others who haven’t yet had the chance to read the story. Many thanks, everyone!

Dear Padma! Thanks for writing such an amazing book. Rukku, Viji, Arul and Muthu will be forever in my heart and I bet in my students’ also.
hi i’m Rama oh what made you wright the story and where did you wright the story
My sixth graders really were interested in the idea that Viji wrote this story, in a way. As we were discussing, the part in chapter 39 when Viji finally started writing (after the argument with Arul), it got us talking about how this book was written. We wondered: “Is the whole book a letter to Rukku?” Thank you for an awesome experience reading your book!

We have truly loved and treasured this book. My students are begging for a sequel 😉 Will we be seeing more of these characters?
