This story was read to a small group of students from Cragin Elementary School. While reading the book, we noticed the interesting graphics and illustrations that were done. Once the book was finished, we discussed the story and how it relates to Arizona weather. They learned that weather and climate play a big role in the community. I then asked the students to draw a picture about what they currently collect, and/or what they would like to collect in the future.
