Our first book project of the school year was picked because it was suitable for all the children, from the youngest to the eldest, and they'd all enjoyed the author's work previously (see also Charlotte's Web).
Most of the week was spent reading the book and watching the three films (Stuart Little 3 was on Amazon Prime).
As a small craft activity the children created their own little mice on sticks.
We also spent some time learning about mice and mouse-like creatures. Solomon particularly liked the sound of the grasshopper mouse, while Monica pointed out that jerboa appeared in Into the Jungle, so we read that section of that book too.
Next project: More Board Games
