At Calvin U. Smith Elementary the kids made 256 paintings of cakes (mimicking the elephant in The Lion’s Share) and hung them up all around the library. I’ve never seen anything like it.
Later, we had an evening program at the library and a bunch of teachers put on a Lion’s Share play. They dressed up in costumes and used the cake paintings to help tell the story. It was a great night, and between 200 – 300 parents and kids showed up for the event. What a night!
