not exactly what mr. crow had in mind
The parents in Henry's class helped make little rag dolls out of handkerchiefs with wool hair for each child. They are delivered several a day by Mr. Crow and the teacher is told which baby would like to go with which child. The babies stay in the classroom until the end of the year for the children to play with and having seen it first hand I can say the kids are pretty excited about the arrival of new little ones each morning. They have names like gladiola, marigold and poppy. Henry got his today and its (they are sort of gender neutral) name is mistletoe. He figured that was probably because his teacher knew he likes missiles. Hmmmm is all I have to say about that.
