Craft ideas:
•  What kind of "beast" will you be for Halloween? Draw!
•  Which of the colors in the book is your favorite? Make a crazy beast using that color.

*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!
