Hog-EyeTitleI like this book because: I love a good smartie-pants protagonist! This reminds me strongly of The Amazing Bone from another favorite author, William Steig, yet has it’s own charms! Would be grteat to read in tandem!

Hog-Eye1Resources/activities: talk about poisonous plants, esp. what can be found in recreational areas nearby; draw pictures of the plants; discuss what you can do if you have encountered them. Also read The Amazing Bone from William Steig.
