illustrations to go along with them, and add their very own phrases as wanted. Class

accommodates one sentence that comes from The Truck That Wished to Be a Submarine. After studying the story and a fast class dialogue, every little one was
given a random web page for instance. Their illustrations wanted to mirror
what was taking place within the textual content.
