We had a visit from a fabulous secret reader, Ms. Nicole. She read us Oliver Jeffers' The Incredible Book Eating Boy. It's all about a boy who is hungry for knowledge so he starts eating books. After a while though, he starts to feel sick and his facts get all jumbled up. In the end he sticks to eating up his broccoli and reading his books to get his knowledge. Thanks Nicole!
We talked about how the pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians used to grind corn for corn bread and corn stew. It was fun, and delicious, to do a traditional Thanksgiving activity.
