Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make a snake bookmark, with a rattle attached.
•  Did you ever do something even though you were told not to? What happened? Draw it!

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don't have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
