Synopsis: (from the publisher) Everyone knows the story of the three little pigs, but now you're going to meet the three little javelinas--lovable, wild, southwestern cousins of pigs--as they try to outsmart the coyote who had hoped to eat them with red chile sauce.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Bring popsicle sticks and build another house for the Javelinas.
•  Draw a scrapbook of the Javelinas' adventures, with drawn pictures, pieces of the houses, etc.
•  Make Javelina noses and headbands.

*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!
