- Talk about the times you have gone to the mountains (or any trip) as a family. What animals and plants did you see? What did you do together?
- Bring out photographs from your trip.
- Offer paper and mark-making utensils (markers, crayons, pencils, paint). How can you represent your favorite part of the trip?
- Use representations (picture, drawing, stuffed animal, figurine, etc.) of scenes from the book (skunk, stream, bluebell flower, etc.) or from your trip and hide them throughout the house. Take a trip "through the mountains" to find them. You can hide them together or individually.
- Use the 'voice memo' feature on any device you have handy to record the sounds that might be heard in the book or on your trip. What can you use to make the sounds? (Your mouth, instruments, kitchen utensils, etc.)
- Leave a message for Georgia about your favorite part of the book. Ask Georgia what her favorite part was.
- Read Georgia a book and send it back to her.
