Betsy B. Little
I stopped into Barnes and Noble this weekend and found a read aloud suited for my primary thinkers.
Betsy B. Little is the story of an awkward giraffe named Betsy who is trying to live with an extra long neck. Written in rhyme the story tells the woes Betsy experiences day by day...trouble riding the bus, trouble skating and of course jump rope becomes a total disaster. Betsy begins to dream of ballet and yearns to dance but you can imagine how her first class goes having an extra long neck. She takes up too much space and stumbles to the floor leaving with a not so good feeling. But, she has a never quit attitude. She doesn't allow her neck or what other's say to keep her from her dreams of dancing.
I am hoping some of my kids are inspired by it tomorrow!!
