PreK Bits - Don't forget your Sweater
Alfie Runs Away in Ms. Rachel's Storytime today. Mother suggests, "Don't forget your sweater ..." and other practical advice.
In the story We Were Tired of Living in a House the children "pack sweaters and hats and socks and a ball of string ..." and try out a number of other places to live.
You can read about more "runaways" in the following titles:
Runaway Bunny, a classic by Margaret Wise Brown, who also wrote the classic Good Night Moon.
Pfister Farnello runs away from his bath and becomes Dirt Boy ... until he meets Dirt Man.
Vera Runs Away when she feels unappreciated in the family.
The Caboose who Got Loose by Bill Peet, tells the story of a caboose who is tired of following the train.
Anyway ... Don't runaway until you've read these stories. Then pack the peanut butter and bring a sweater, in case you get hungry and chilly.
