Vive Anatole

Our Prep students LOVED  the story of Anatole, the French mouse by Eve Titus. I was surprised to see that the book was nearly as old as I am, having been first published in 1956. We read the first few pages of the story which is available at and the students  gleefully joined in whenever I read “his wife Douchette and his six charming children, Paul and Paulette, Claude and Claudette and Georges and Georgette” . They constructed a 3D mouse and  made it a folded cardboard house  complete with furnishings. They also drew the mice in a cobblestoned street and added watercolour paints and collage (the yellow foam pieces are cheese) to complete their work. We never rush our students. We believe that “Quality work takes time”.
