Synopsis: Do animals have mothers, too? Of course they do--just like me and you!

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Draw your favorite animal family from the list at the end of the book.
•  Make a "Mom" button (big round piece of construction paper as base) of all of the favorite things you like about your mom/grandmother.

*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!
