I used various pictures to inspire “conversations” between the animals. The kids loved to use their imaginations and were eager to learn more about using quotations. This is a great time to discuss the fairytale, folktale and fable character’s “dialogue” too. Allow the children to pick their favorite picture. I keep several of these pictures for my kids to use all year long! www.visualccl.com
