Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make a bookmark like a totem pole. Explain why each totem is there.
•  Draw the land of the people that the Chief's Son visits. How does it look?

*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!
