A Class Book

For some reason I don't make many class books with my kids. I'm not sure why because I think it's a fabulous way to engage the kids and to teach them the craft of writing. Tammy, from Forever In First, is a class book master. Every time I read about one of her books I promise myself that THIS time my class will make one.

Well, guess what, Tammy? We FINALLY did it:)

A couple of months ago we read this book (recommended to me by Sandi from rubber boots and elf shoes):

Everyone loved the story so we decided to write our own version. Here it is. Enjoy!
