•  Who are the ?girls? in your life?

Discussion topics for during/after reading:

•  What kinds of things do you see the women in your life doing? (ex. mom, aunt, sister)
•  What are the qualities that make a girl ?amazing?? For boys, what makes you ?amazing??

*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!
