Published in 1948 and part of the Before Five in a Row (BFIAR)booklist, The Red Carpet is a rollicking good story with vivid illustrations. It is about a runaway carpet that rolls all over town and stops just in time to make the Duke of Sultana feel welcome when he arrives at the dock. The red carpet and the policemen chasing after it make the unsuspecting Duke beam with importance.
The Red Carpet Treatment
I planned to roll out a red carpet for my husband for Father’s Day. But the other day, he went to work feeling really sick. I thought it would be a wonderful surprise to welcome him home with a red carpet treatment! It was also a nice tie-in with our discussion about heroes during our recent Philippine Independence Day study. Fathers who work hard deserve to be called heroes, right?
We got an early start to our Father’s Day and I have to think now of other things to do then. But I hope you got some red-carpet ideas for that special day while learning and having fun with your kids!
