Oh my, is there anything cuter than a class of preschoolers? Yes, preschoolers in rain boots.
I just had a class of 17 preschool students in the library for a field trip and they totally made me melt. One of the things I start my field trip presentations with is the question, "What else can you find in this library besides books?"
And the answers I got from the preschoolers today were, "Books," "You can read books," and "I want to go home and see my mama." So I guess that question was a little too much for them. But they were pretty happy when I showed them where to find the Curious George and Thomas the Tank Engine books.
They got excited when I showed them all the dinosaur books, told them stories about a dog running loose in the library and about the person who dropped a library book in the toilet (which has become a good teaching experience) and talked about all the things you shouldn't put in the book drop box.
So even though it has rained for 3 days straight and my car is not working (because of the rain...gotta take it in and see what's going on), there's nothing that can bring a little sunshine to your day like 30 minutes with four-year-olds in little rain boots.
