BookMoot took the "camp-in-a-box" on the road today. We did some setting up yesterday but today was story time.
The owls were hooting and the coyotes were howling and the campfire was "flickering" and these comments were heard at the campsite.
"Wow, it looks like Disneyland or something. I wish we were coming." -- Me too.
All day long: "Is that fire REAL?" -- What does your imagination tell you?
From a teacher: "I've heard of you, you're a legend." -- Only in my mind, sir, only in my mind.
"Tell Dragon, hi!"
"Where's the dragon?"
"Is your dragon here?"
"I remember that dragon!"
"That dragon is funny."
"He's a puppet." then, another child, "Shhh...don't tell him."
"When are you coming back?"
But the best comment all day was from the Assistant Principal doing a last minute walk-through in anticipation of the FIRE marshal's inspection in a few hours...
"Oh, NO! The "fire" has to GO!"
Of all the days to have a camp-out in the library.
Many many thanks to Margaret Read MacDonald's
Three Minute Tales for so much fun with a "jump" story, "Potato in my Hand."
