For prep, fold the pages in half, cut the pages into two parts and trim if necessary. Next, staple the corner of the pages. After the books are prepped, give the books to the children, read along with the children, and let them color. Thirteen book pages. My children love this book, and I am sure your students will enjoy it as well!
