Preschool People Go Around the World
"We put down papers and laid down on them. We traced our outlines.
The teachers helped us cut them out, and then we painted them. Our
art teacher helped. My person had pink skin, some had brown or white.
We took a long time mixing our colors to match our skins. Mine was
really kind of a strawberry color. We decorated airplane tickets with
watercolors and made passports so our people could go on the plane.
Our teachers packed their suitcases. We said goodbye to them on Friday,
and on Monday they were gone all over the world. They sent us a Swedish
horse, and a mask from Africa, and dolls from a lot of places like
Russia and China. The packages came to the post office in our class.
We had to be very gentle. The doll from China has a bow on her back,
and it might break. The people should come back, but they aren't back
