Synopsis: A young girl and her favorite aunt share the excitement of planning a very special car trip for just the two of them.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Cut out a car shape, and inside draw and write all of the things you like to do with your Mom, Aunt, Grandmother, and/or big sister.
•  Make a map of the trip for the women, so that they can remember how to get to North Carolina.

*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!
