The third graders finished sharing their first novel written in verse called, Where I Live. We just started a Johanna Hurwitz book called, Pee Wee and Plush. It is an animal adventure story about 2 guinea pigs that are living in the "wilds" of Central Park. It is based on the true story of an extended family of guinea pigs found living in the famous NYC park.
This story is told in first person by Pee Wee, a lovable and kind guinea pig; he shares the adventures of the guinea pigs and their close animal friends as they figure out how the guinea pigs will survive the NYC winter.
