Since Alena is the estrella de la semana, I was invited to come read a book to the class. She also got to bring in a special toy to show and tell about, so the class was excited to guess what it was. :)

She didn't want to get up this morning, she just wanted to keep playing with all her "friends."

Alena had waited so long to be the "estrella de la semana" at school, and the excitement she had in making her poster today was simply wonderful. :)
