Synopsis: The best thing about third grade for Wilson is the class pet, Squiggles the hamster. Next come art and his friend Josh. The worst thing is math, especially the multiplication tables.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Make a multiplication table bingo card (card has answer, volunteers call out questions) and chips. Play Bingo!
•  Make a dust jacket for the book, with a picture on the front from the book, and a summary of the book on the back.

*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!
