Synopsis: (from the publisher) A little fish, the lone survivor of a school of fish swallowed by a tuna, devises a plan to camouflage himself and his new companions.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Cut out several fish and paste them onto a darker color to recreate the giant fish.
•  Use potatoes or sponges with watercolor or markers to stamp schools of fish into the shape of a big fish.

*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!
