Parent Storytime (Michael and Jen)

Ben’s parents read “The Big Orange Spot” to the Leaping Lemurs this morning! Mr. Plumbean lives on a neat street with identical houses all in a row and then his house is splashed with bright orange paint! His neighbors don’t like the sight of it and ask that he paint his house. So he does, but instead of repainting it the original color, he uses a rainbow of colors to cover his house with swirls and dots, elephants and lions. The neighbors are not pleased! The next day he adds palm trees and a hammock. The neighbors are outraged! They send one of the neighbors to talk some sense into Mr. Plumbean, but the next morning the neighbors awake to find that the man has painted his house to look like a boat! Each time someone goes to Mr. Plumbean about his house, they wind up going home and remodeling their house instead. Now all the houses are different and if you ask why all the people would say, “Our street is us and we are it. Our street is where we like to be, and it looks like all our dreams.”
