Synopsis: When Sophie has to surrender one toy to her sister, stumbles over another toy, and gets no sympathy from her mother, she runs furiously out into the woods, first to cry, and then sit in a huge old beech, watching the ocean until the tempest abates.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  What do you do when you're angry? Draw a picture.
•  Make an "Emotion" hat, decorated with all of the things you associate with an emotion--anger, happy, scared, etc.
•  Of course, duck mouths are always fun!

*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!
