A Back to School Activity

One of my favorite authors has got to be Paul Schmid. He wrote A Pet for Petunia and a few other books, but after reading his newest book, I have a new favorite. :) Click the picture to read about Oliver and His Alligator
This is the sweetest story about a boy who is nervous about his first day of school. This would be the perfect book to read to your kids the first couple of weeks of school. I've included several activities you could use with the book, along with the patterns for this cute little alligator, in my newest literary companion:
