You did a great job with Sanjay's voice--simple, as if English were his second language, or we were reading this in translation.
I loved how you likened Sanjay's feeliing of hopelessness after the trunami to the destruction of the shop doors with their color and design. You definitely made a case for the value of the printed page.
This simple story is rich with meaning and feelings. This is very well done; I feel as though I could see Sanjay and truly feel his joy at reading. Well done!
This is precious and you did a fantastic job of writing as this little girl who learned how to read English. Very, very good. I enjoyed this immensely.

PS. I think I would have used the word 'were' to go with the words 'All' and 'piles.' (since you asked) ;)
