Make Your Own Skydiving Beaver!


Received the sweetest note from an Illinois librarian who incorporated an extra-clever craft into her The Skydiving Beavers: A True Tale story time.

"I really enjoyed reading about the skydiving beavers," Karin Thogersen of the Huntley Area Public Library wrote. "I shared it with a special needs class in our monthly storytime this May and the kids (and their teachers and aides) also thought it was a hoot. After I read the book to them, I helped everyone make their own skydiving beavers.... Then we launched them into the air—that was the best part for them."

Karin graciously allowed me to share her instructions/template for a make-your-own skydiving beaver, complete with functional coffee-filter parachute! Check it out at the book's website:

It’s so much fun, and so gratifying, for kidlit authors to see how the books we create are used out in the wild.

Thanks, Karin! And what a beautiful library!
