To start off our fun-filled Friday we had a surprise visitor. Fourth grade teacher Denise came to read a book. The Jan Brett favorite Hedgie's Surprise.
Little did we know, she had a surprise sleeping in her pocket. Her hedgehog, Bentley, came to play! We learned how to pet him and each got a turn. Did you know hedgehogs are nocturnal. Bentley stays busy at night on his wheel. His skinny little legs fun FOUR MILES every night.
Then we made our way down to Carbondale to see The Giving Tree. The play was inspired by the Shel Silverstein's classic, filled with poems, and performed by some very talented kids!
