LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — We now take you to the place where change in Arkansas begins -- Pre-K! More specifically, Rockefeller Pre-K. 

The kids enjoyed the mystery of Pete the Cat and the Missing Cupcakes. The story had everything: cats, birds, and a guilty frog. 

Whoops! I just gave away the ending. 

I've read research that stories can help with math, by providing images of the symbols that will later become numbers to them. Pete the Cat and the Missing Cupcakes did all that. 

This is the last year Rockefeller is an elementary. It has a Pre-K attached to the elementary right now, but it's set to be all Pre-K next year.
