Synopsis: In this humorous version of "Three Billy Goats Gruff," three armadillo sisters encounter a strange creature in a culvert when they try to go dancing.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Which sister are you most like? Make a puppet of that Armadillie.
•  Draw a picture of what you and your siblings or cousins like to do for fun.
•  Make a book cover for the book - on the front draw a picture from the book, and on the back, tell the story from the coyote?s point of view.

*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!
