The read aloud experience was enriched beautifully when one of the children arrived at class with a foil-wrapped Valentine’s Day treat for me!

Before opening the cover of the book, we talked about the red, foil-wrapped present. The children made predictions about what was inside the foil. We checked to see if they were right. Then, we talked about what each of us might do with a chocolate heart. Some would eat it right away and some would save it for another day. The discussion was fantastic! The children ‘connected’ with the story, making predictions and thinking about Lilly’s dilemma.

For those who might be wondering, I still have the foil-wrapped chocolate heart. For me, anticipation is part of the fun!
