Yesterday we read this book about a little girl who is having a bad day. She wakes up grumpy and feels like her family isn’t paying any attention to her. She decides to do things like pulling the stuffing out of Dad’s chair, poking her brother, and writing on the wall. Turns out her dad was paying attention all along, and he convinces her to be noticed for good things instead of bad. The students made lots of connections to this story. Some students said they sometimes feel like no one notices them, another said he could relate to feeling grumpy in the morning, and lots of students were reminded of building their own forts out of couch cushions when Minerva made a fort to hide inside.
