Last week I arrived in Washington state to have a short visit with Mrs. Hembree and the Bulldog Readers.
As you can see on the map, Washington is a LONG way from Tasmania, Australia!
Washington state is on the northwest coast of the United States. I came to us via Mr. Salsich’s class in Connecticut, which is on the northeast coast of the United States! I traveled about 3,000 miles or about 4,900 kilometers from there to here.
I was pretty tired when I arrived, so I went home with Mrs. Hembree to rest. She let me take a nap on the couch with Kasa, Mrs. Hembree’s Pomeranian.
Once I was rested, Mrs. Hembree thought it was time for me to meet Reese, Mrs. Hembree’s other dog. YIKES! He is a rather large Bernese Mountain Dog! I wasn’t sure if Reese was going to eat me or lick me! Luckily, he just gave me a look, and left me alone!
Then it was time to go to school just in time to meet Cat in the Hat who was also visiting for Read Across America Week!
I also helped some students with their library lessons. They were practicing how to be a book illustrator.
Then I counted stripes on Cat in the Hat’s hats! There were a lot to count!
Next I will be going home with Andrew! I wonder what that will be like!
