Ideas for using this book in classroom or library and/or brief notes on curriculum connections/content learning standards/Common Core, etc.:

  • Why doesn’t the bear want to have visitors?  What changes his mind?
  • Do you sometimes not want to do something at first, but then once you did it, you’re glad you did?  Give an example and write about it.
  • Read this with Green Eggs and Ham, another book about someone changing his mind at the end of the book.
