Synopsis: Too shy to join the other children in group activities, Wilson resigns himself to doing everything alone--until the arrival at school of a new girl who does things alone too.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Draw a picture of Sarah's head, and inside draw and write what she was thinking about when she went up to Wilson.
•  Make a construction paper chain; on each "chain," draw and write what it means to be a good friend, then link them together.

*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!
