Birthday Celebration at School

On Thursday we celebrated Nolan's birthday at school.  I was invited to read his favorite book to his class.  There were many discussions about which book was appropriate and unfortunately several that were vetoed such as Horton Hears a Who (too long) and Polar Express (too long) and a comic book (not easy to read outloud) and a 4 page word book about gardening () and a book about manners (too short).
Emily was thrilled to have roaming ability in this classroom.  Ooh so many things to put in her mouth!  
  I read Big Chickens Fly the Coop.  It is a silly story, Nolan was a little funny about the attention- he wouldn't wear his birthday crown, he didn't want to sit next to me but rather with his friends.
 He also refused the offer to sing happy birthday.  
But I think he loved it.  We talked about it so much and he seemed to have a really great day!
