Craft ideas:
•  Would you rather be a "gorilla face" or a "banana head?" Make a mask!
•  What kinds of things do your friends know about you or do for you? Make them a card that tells them.

*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!
