Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad - Lulu is so excited for the Bug Squad to come over for a
EspanolIcon playdate, and she has all kinds of things planned for them to do-right down to eating cupcakes. The cupcakes are special because each one has a candle that Lulu thinks everyone should blow out at exactly the same time. But when things don't go just the way Lulu planned, feelings are hurt and apologies are necessary. Sounds like a job for Ladybug Girl, who knows how to be brave and say she's sorry, even when it isn't easy. Try these activities at home:Printable: Ladybug Girl

What Color is Caesar?

What Color is Caesar?

Caesar is very confused about his color. He is a Dalmatian, who does not know if he is white with black spots or black with white spots. Nobody else in his house seems to think it is a big deal, but Caesar is very concerned. He sets out on a journey to seek the truth about his identity.

What Color Is Caesar? is a great story to illustrate that skin color is not the best way to identify yourself. It is more important to evaluate others by what is under their skin and not what you see on the surface.

Aunt Flossie’s Hats (and Crab Cakes Later)

Aunt Flossie's Hats

Sara and Susan share tea, cookies, crab cakes, and stories about hats when they visit their favorite relative, Aunt Flossie.

Sarah and Susan enjoy spending time at their Aunt Flossie’s house.  It’s like a step back in history.  They like playing dress up in her fancy hats because her hats come with their own stories…and Aunt Flossie tells them these stories each time the girls try on a different hat.  Most of the stories are from a time before the girls were born, when she was a girl.  But one of the hats has a story the girls know and help tell.  It involves a lake, a boy, a dog and their dad’s very funny accident.
