For our final StoryCrafter club session, we read a spooky, sad and silly book titled Bone Dog by Eric Rothman. Gus and his dog Ella are constant companions until Ella gets old and dies. When Gus runs into trouble on Halloween night, can you guess who comes to help him out?
 Silly skeletons danced throughout the pages of this book. So we made some of our own, using cotton swabs for bones! Even though the bones were not realistic, many children felt for their own bones as they checked to see where arm bones met shoulders and leg bones met hips. Some even cut the cotton swabs to make phalanges, or finger bones! Do you see them?
