INTRODUCE the activity by reminding children that Stellaluna was raised by Mama Bird until her real mother found her again.
ASK children to think about what the two mothers would talk about if they met. For instance, Mama Bird might describe Stellaluna's efforts to behave like a bird. Stellaluna's mother might thank Mama Bird for taking care of her child.
ENCOURAGE pairs of children to create dialogues between the two parents. Have them perform their dialogues for the rest of the class.
