If you have been in any store this week, you know it's time for school supply soiree! We LOVE school supplies in this house. They all smell so delicious to me, which is why they are locked up in the guest room. This week's story is another one by Robert Munsch. In honor of all the new school supplies, I bring you Purple, Green, and Yellow.
Brigid begs her mom for new markers. The same kind all her friends have. Of course, her mom buys them for her. When reading this book to first graders, this is the time to remind them they don't have to have everything their friends have. The mom is concerned Brigid will draw on the walls or the floor or herself. Brigid promises she won't.
So, Brigid colors for awhile and decides she now needs the "super duper never come off markers till your dead and maybe even later" markers.
Well, those markers looked better than real life colors! They were so colorful that Brigid couldn't help herself. She started with her thumb nail, which lead to all her fingernails, which lead to her hand, which lead to HER WHOLE BODY!!!
Uh oh... Brigid broke her promise! Her mom called a 'doctor' who gave Brigid a pill and told her to take a bath. When she came out, the markers had washed off, but Brigid was invisible!!!
The last page will definitely tickle your funny bone. Every year, a first grader tries to pull a Brigid. Even though we read this book the first week of school and talk about how you can never get away with coloring yourself! It's as obvious as when I dig in the dirt and pretend it didn't happen!!!
