Book Week 2013 and the focus is on space. I gave Mac a few options for his book week character based on things we already had ‘laying around’ the place.
To his credit he picked the more obscure option – but potentially easiest for me – in Albert Einstein.
He owns a cool Einstein tee-shirt courtesy of a recent trip to the Griffith Observatory, regularly gets around in some star pattern pants when not in his school uniform and he was pretty certain that had red converse hi-tops been around when Einstein was a kid… that’s what he would have worn.
Add some silver and white hair spray, a fake moustache and brows and, there you have it, Mac = Albert (yep, that is all Mac’s own hair).
I particularly loved watching the kids find out who Mac ‘came as’ then, share that with other kids as though it was the most obvious thing in the world, busily telling anyone who would listen “look, Mac came as Albert Einstein” or “did you see Mac? He’s Albert Einstein”.
I did buy Mac this book from the “I Am” series which we will read in the coming days on the Kindle App on the iPad.
I realised I had some of my own space/time continuum failings as I tried to remember what Mac had done for book week each year since Kindergarten. Thanks to some past blog posts & a Facebook post I was able to look back and see just what we actually did in those prior years.
