On our last trip to the library, this book made its way into our pile.
It's a cute story about a kid who asks for a pet, but his parents won't let him get one (sounds vaguely familiar), until he asks for a "Snaggle Grollop". His parents agree that he can have a Snaggle Grollop since it's a make believe animal. The next day, much to his parents surprise, the boy brings his animal home.
After we read the story, I decided to have the kids draw pictures of their own make believe animals and name them.
They enjoyed creating a new creature and coming up with a silly name.
It ended up being a fun, easy little activity.
