The Big Green Pocketbook, by Candice Ransom was a hit amongst our Busy Bees. It is about a little girl who is proud to carry around her green pocketbook just like her mother's blue one. As they set out for a trip to town on the bus, the little girl's purse is empty, but is soon filled with fun things like lollipops, a pocket calendar, new crayons...each bus stop means something new for the big green purse. The little girl leaves her purse behind on return trip home but but the friendly driver saves the day.
Our Busy Bees have never ridden a bus before but I think after reading this story they are hoping to in the near future. :) They each made their very own green pocketbook and filled it with lollipops and orange slices at the end of their day.
They also practiced writing the letter "L" (for lollipop)
