For Teachers and Librarians
Since it will be available paperback come April, Simon and Schuster has created a new discussion guide for The Search for WondLa combined with Kenny and the Dragon (which was just released in paperback).
The discussions questions are thoughtful and true to the thinking I used in writing the story. For WondLa, you get questions like this:
What elements make up a family? Does color, size, or shape make a difference in these elements? Is it possible for a robot to be a family member?
Lewis and Clark, John Audubon, and Charles Darwin are all greatly admired people who captured “new” creatures, observed them, killed them, and dissected them all in an attempt to understand them. Are Zin, Besteel, Queen Ojo, and the taxidermist any different from these men?
For Kenny, you also get discussion questions as well as cool activities like:

Also, I’ll add it to the WondLa Book Page, where the other book-related activities reside. In particular, the Spiderwick Activity Pages are fun. Where else are you gonna find the recipe for Faerie Porridge?
Also, I’ve added a blog category “For Teachers” and have tagged a few older posts that I thought would be relevant to activities and book study on the class and library. Enjoy!
