Exploring Seattle with Andrew

As part of my visit to Washington, I got to go home with Andrew, a kindergarten Bulldog Reader! He took me to Seattle to see some of the sites there! We thought about going up the Space Needle, but I’m afraid of heights, so I said, “No, thank you!”

I had a fun time with the Bulldog Readers in Washington. Now I’m on my way back to the east coast to visit some new students!

First we went to the Seattle Center, where the Seattle Space Needle is located. you can see it in the background. The Space Needle was built for the 1962 World’s Fair.

Then we went to the Pike Place Market. I got to see all the wonderful fresh food and flower vendors there. It gets really crowded with tourists!

All that walking around made us thirsty, so Andrew took me to the original Starbucks Coffee shop at the Pike Place Market. I had some hot chocolate because I was a little chilly!

Arrival in Washington State

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!
