April Pulley Sayre's beautiful texts always make me smile and feel as though all is right in the world. This book has very few words. It's sparse text is perfect for a quick read aloud. I'm including an origami activity below. When we lived in Japan, my son's Japanese language support teacher turned us on to this site. We've been using it ever since.
Activity Name: Origami Squirrels
Activity Description: Follow the directions on the sheet below. If you're never tried origami with your class, it's a good idea to invest in origami paper. It's much thinner than typical paper, so it's easier to fold which leads to less frustration and more success.
