April 29, 2011: Book Treasure Book

Today we read, If  You Give a Cat a Cupcake, as our book treasure book. If you give a cat a cupcake, he’ll ask for some sprinkles to go with it. When you give him the sprinkles, he might spill some on the floor. Cleaning up will make him hot, so you’ll give him a bathing suit . . . and that’s just the beginning! Your child should have brought home their retelling sheet, envelope, and a little cupcake to keep in their treasure chest. Retelling sheets and envelopes are due back to school by Tuesday. If you would like to listen to the story again, just click on the title of the book below.
