Synopsis: Daisy's family runs a restaurant, and holidays are always crazy. This year, Daisy's going to spend Thanksgiving with Grammy and Grampy--even though Mama says being with her relatives is like being at the zoo.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Draw a picture of Daisy's head, and inside draw what she was thinking at different parts of the story.
•  Have you ever had a crazy thanksgiving, or other holiday? 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!
