Snacktime is a great time for Evette and her classmates to discuss something very exciting-her birthday!
It's snacktime in Mr. Walter's classroom, and Evette has something to say. ""Only kids with a baby sister can come to my birthday."" Not everyone has a little sister-but everyone would like to be invited. Evette and her classmates begin a conversation filled with imagination and discovery. After lots of discussion, Evette knows just what to do to make her party the most fun.
Evette's Invitation captures the rich, spontaneous, and oftentimes quirky conversations that young children bring to the table. The book contains a page of information to help you connect the story to children's experiences, which makes it a great teaching tool for your classroom or child care setting.
