Date(s) Used: Mar. 2002, Mar. 2001

Synopsis: In rhyming verse, Wood tells of Silly Sally, who goes to town, walking backwards, upside down. Along her way she meets many animals who join her in dancing, leaping, singing, and sleeping.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Assign parts and make simple costumes, and re-enact the story.
•  Make a Silly Sally Button. Use one piece of construction paper in some shape as the background. Cut out a Sally shape from another piece of paper, and affix the Sally to the background in the center with string, a paperclip, or some other clip to allow Sally to spin around.

*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!
