Readapalooza 28: Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days! Part 2

Welcome back to digital Readapalooza, our storytime for elementary-age kids. Today, we will read part 2 of Be a Perfect Person in Just Three Days by Stephen Manes. Dr. Silverfish instructed Milo to wear broccoli around his neck all day as the first step to becoming perfect. Can he do it? What will his family say? What will the kids at school say? To find out, sit back, enjoy and remember to log your time for summer reading in Beanstack!


Make an Origami Fish

All Milo could do was drink water so he tried to fill up at the water fountain. When he took too long, all the other kids shouted, “Save some for the fishes!” Try making this origami fish.
