1st graders got a treat with new books. They were read Pete the Cat and his Magic Sunglasses by Kimberly & James Dean as well as La Paloma encuentra un perro caliente! by Mo Willems.
The Pete the Cat group learned about the blue cat blues, that is, when one has a out-of-the-ordinary bad day. While Pete used his magic sunglasses to change his day around, students learned that he really didn't need them in the end--they too can change their day from bad to good.
La Paloma encuentra un perro caliente (the Pigeon finds a hotdog!) group were very interactive with the book; they laughed at every page! Although La Paloma isn't much for sharing, he and the duckling share the hotdog in the end.
