You may have noticed that your child came home with a new stuffed animal last week!Top of Page
In planning to read Tear Soup as another great piece in our journey learning how to process grief and life disappointments, I was drawn to the dog in the book on each page. He looks almost exactly like dog mascot for the shoe brand, Hush Puppies. In contacting Hush Puppies at Wolverine World Wide, they were pleased to partner with our class and donate 30 stuffed animal hush puppies for our students to have to bring comfort and remind them of their journey through life. After reflecting with a Tear Soup activity, each student received their stuffed animal (and most of them were instantly named!) :)
The class sent out a letter of thanks to Hush Puppies for these new, cuddly friends.
