Pet parade simulation

Michal Kocanda (from left), Noemi Castillo, Mayar Melhem and Aiden Hodor, pre-kindergartners at Dorn School in Hickory Hills, participated in a pet parade held by teacher Lynn Crain to mark the completion of a study of author Ezra Jack Keats and his book “Pet Show.” Students culminated the project by staging a pet parade through the hallways of Dorn, but rather than bringing the real Duke the Dalmatian or Precious the Persian from home, students brought stuffed animals or photos of their pets.
