Read Aloud: Chidi Only Likes Blue. Make a color wheel. You can use this blank wheel if you like. In each section of the wheel, write down your notes or draw the items Chidi and Nneka like. Put this page in our African scrapbook.

Read Aloud: The Jungle Grapevine. Make sure you read the Author’s Note at the back of the book!

Music:: Listen to (and dance to, if you like) Kronos Quartet’s Pieces of Africa all day.

Movie for Mom and Dad: Amistad. Must-read reviews.

Older Kids: Read Amos Fortune. There is a sample study guide here, but we probably won’t use it… dinner time discussion should be good enough for this, and maybe a one-page narration. I’m also letting the kids peruse some links:
