|Phyllis' World Tour|
"Boy, oh boy, Ms. Pam! I see why this city is called, HotLanta!" exclaimed Phyllis. It was a humid 80 degrees when the weather predicting groundhog arrived in Atlanta, Ga.
Author, Susanna Leonard Hill, scheduled a world tour for her latest book, April Fool, Phyllis! Due to (ahem) technical difficulties, (cell phone dropped in toilet during the class' potty time) many of our photo engagements did not survive. Phyllis tried to help in retrieving the pictures, but thought her talents were best suited for predicting snowstorms. However, the remaining photos show what an amazing time Phyllis had visiting the Peach State!

You're Peachy Keen, Phyllis!
Phyllis arrived at Little Scholars Academy on Monday, March 26th at 10:30a.m. The children at Little Scholars were so excited! Phyllis read the enclosed message & riddle Susanna had written to them. There were giggles and squeals, and the children began hugging each other. Phyllis loved that particular spontaneous response from the children.
After a long day of fun everyone was tuckered out!
"I'm gonna be a really good rester for naptime." says Alayna. "Does that mean you'd like to rest with Phyllis? asked Ms. Stephanie.
Tayla Takes Phyllis Site Seeing!
Martin Luther King Center. I've been before, but Phyllis said it was her first visit. We took this picture beneath a picture of Dr. King and his little girl. I told Phyllis that Dr. King was a civil rights leader. He spent his life working for fairness for everyone.
Here we are in front of a statue of Gandhi. Dr. King and Gandhi believed in non-violence to gain justice for everyone. Dr. King was given a special award called the Nobel Peace Prize. Dr. King called Gandhi his mentor. Many thought Gandhi should have received the Nobel Peace Prize but he never did.
This is called The Reflecting Pool. This is where Dr. Martin Luther King and his wife Coretta Scott King are buried. We have some books that have a Coretta Scott King Award in our Pre-K class.
Susanna, here we are in front of a picture of Rosa Parks. She became a famous person in the Civil Rights Movement too. We read about her in class. She was very brave.
The next day, Mommy treated me and Phyllis to pancakes at IHOP. We had a HUGE breakfast. Mommy said she could never get her pancakes to come out that yummy looking. "How did you know I like pancakes?" asked Phyllis.
