We did happen to start with "The Story About Ping" because it was on the shelf at the library. I didn't particularly like this book but Ronin and Hunter both seemed to. I liked how I did two "lessons" about this book with Ronin and whenever Hunter came home I was able to do another one with him and I didn't feel like I was having to catch him up. He can just sit in on the book and activity whenever he feels like it.
And this is an art project from an Usborne art book that Ronin did. It's a pop up card (the beak pops up) and we made it with the corner of an old envelope. She said that this is a picture of Ping's mother and she is crying because Ping is missing. This card was made for Hunter while he was back in the hospital. It is representative of how I am his mother and I cry because he is missing from our home.
