Synopsis: When Annie's cat disappears, she attempts friendship with a variety of unsuitable woodland animals, but with the emergence of Spring, everything comes right.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  What was Taffy doing while she was gone? Draw a picture of her adventures in the style of the book (with another picture as the frame).
•  What would have happened if Annie had tamed the Moose (or other wild animal)? What would she have named him, where would he have slept? Draw a picture.

*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!
