The cat who walked across France

catThis week Grade 1-3 have read the realistic fiction book The Cat Who Walked Across France by French author and illustrator, Kate Banks and Georg Hallensleben. This very descriptive book fit in well with the Grade 2 unit about homes and the Grade 3 unit about exploration and journeys. However, it seemed so realistic that we began to feel that perhaps it might have been based on a true story!

We had fun learning some of the countries of Europe, including France, using this interactive map from Shepphard Software.
