Literature Day at Nadeen International School

My adorable Tanner was Cat in the Hat for Literature Day yesterday. The whole school dressed as characters from their favorite books. The children enjoyed parading in the courtyard and shopping for used books at the used book stall. They delighted in hearing their teachers and parent volunteers read the books that inspired their costumes. Tanner was proud to win the "Best Mum Made Costume" (and so was I if we're being honest here) he was happy to show off and share his prize: a new book!

"We looked!
Then we saw him step in on the mat!
We looked!
And we saw him!
The Cat in the Hat!"

"I know some good games we could play,"
said the cat.
I know some new tricks,"
Said the Cat in the Hat.
"A lot of good tricks.
I will show them to you.
Your mother
Will not mind at all if I do."

Then we saw him pick up
All the things that were down.
He picked up the cake,
And the rake, and the gown,
And the milk, and the strings,
And the books, and the dish,
And the fan, and the cup,
And the ship, and the fish.
And he put them away.
Then he said, "That is that."
And then he was gone
With the tip of his hat.
