Right now the story room is full of boxes. The kids have been helping Build a Better World by creating their own community through recycling. The older kids are using boxes to make all the different buildings our community needs and the younger kids have been turning toilet paper tubes into trees and cars. I think it will be fabulous when it goes on display at the end of the week.
To go along with our theme, our last weekly letter is 'R' for recycle. One of the books I chose to read to the kids is just perfect.

I hope you get a chance to try out this fun author with a little one sometime soon!
