The children might enjoy reenacting the battle too. • Test math skills in Is She or Isn’t She. • Explore Bolivia and its culture in Flickertail’s Llama Mama. • Just like Flickertail & Paint, put on a play based on Agatha Christie’s Halloween Party. • Have the children discuss what they might have done differently to help Flickertail’s and Paint’s friends.
