Response Suggestions

  • After reading the book discuss how the story relates to the experience of the readers/listeners. Download Eerdmans Books for Young Readers Discussion Guide for Loon Summer. [download page 1] -- [download page 2]

  • The divorce of parents or two people that love a child can fill the child with questions and concern. Those children who are themselves in a two-parent family may want to understand what their classmates or friends are experiencing. An excellent informational book on the topic is Dinosaurs Divorce by Marc Brown and Laura Krasny Brown.
  • Make a collective list of the types of families a child might be living in: grandparent and child, a mom and child, a dad and child, two moms, two dads, an uncle or aunt with a child, and so forth.
  • Read one or more of the books listed in the "Booklist" below and compare and contrast the experience of Rainie and the main character in the specific book listed below. [Please send any suggestions you have for this list to the the webkeeper.]
