Story Time: For the last week of summer reading 2021, we're going purple! Today we will read Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse by Kevin Henkes and make a duct tape pouch.
Book Synopsis: Lilly loves everything about school, especially her cool teacher, Mr. Slinger. But when Lilly brings her purple plastic purse and its treasures to school and can't wait until sharing time, Mr. Slinger confiscates her prized possessions. Lilly's fury leads to revenge and then to remorse and she sets out to make amends.
