Readapalooza 27: Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days Part 1

Welcome back to digital Readapalooza, our storytime for elementary-age kids. Today, we’ll read Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days by Stephen Manes. Today we will read part 1 and then continue the book in the next three Readapalooza sessions. Have you ever wanted to be perfect?  Milo Crinkley does. Can Dr. K. Pinkerton Silverfish help to make him perfect? To find out, sit back, enjoy and remember to log your time for summer reading in Beanstack!

Paint with Broccoli


  • Broccoli (fresh, not frozen with imitation cheese sauce)
  • Paint
  • Paper


Milo wore broccoli around his neck as the first step in becoming perfect. You can use broccoli for painting instead! Just dip broccoli into paint and dab it on paper to create a design or picture.
