This picture book guide was designed to help teachers make digital connections to literature.
The guide opens with an introduction that helps students build interest in a story about a talking bone.
Five guiding questions are provided that can be the basis for whole class discussion or individual student essay response.
An extension idea is provided in the form of a website that allows students learn animate and add voices to other inanimate objects.
The guide closes with the five guiding questions on three printable pages with plenty of room for written responses. An answer key is also provided.
